Glossed and Found

Apr 21, 2013 >> Microphone Fiends!

It’s National Karaoke Week! (Who knew, right?) In honor of the guilty pleasure, we asked some friends of Glossed + Found to tell us their favorite spots to let it rip. They also dished about the best songs to bring down the house. Ready, set … grab the mic.
