Red Karaoke is a free app for Windows 8 and 8.1, which allows you to sing along with your favorite song without the vocals recorded into the song. The app has a massive collection of songs which you can click on to begin their playback, and once the playback has been started, you’ll also be able to see the lyrics of the song on your screen. The lyrics get shaded according to the time signature, so you know which part of the lyric you have to sing at the time. The app is pretty lightweight considering the number of tracks available in it, and hence makes for a good download on your device. You do however need to be connected to the internet in order to use the app.
Red Karaoke is available for free from the Windows App Store.

Red Karaoke is a well designed app for Windows 8 and 8.1 which allows you to sing along with pre defined karaoke songs built into the app. The app however does require an active internet connection to run, and hence is pretty useless if you don’t have an internet connection. The app is lightweight, and can easily be downloaded off the Windows App Store. Best of all, it’s ad free!
I rate the app a 4 out of 5!
Get Red Karaoke.
