Recisio acquires www.karaoke.com
Recisio confirms its leading position on the karaoke market by acquiring the most visible domain name for this segment, www.karaoke.com.
After karaoke-version.com and karafun.com, the company adds a third asset to its portfolio, extending its market reach.
Plans for this domain name have not yet been publicly unveiled.
Besides offering you the latest international hits, Recisio added more French classics to its Karaoke Version
services last month, in anticipation of the Christmas and New Year festivities.
These include among others ''C'est la Ouate'' as made famous by Caroline Loeb, ''Débarquez Moi'' by Jean Luc Lahaye, ''La Liste'' by Rose or songs like ''A Paris'' and ''Champs Elysées'' as revisited by Zaz on her epic new album.
Thanks to all our partners for their support!
Last month, we added more popular karaoke songs including ''Words Don't Come Easy'' by F.R. David, ''Je ne suis qu'une chanson'' by Ginette Reno or ''Andalouse'' by Kendji Girac among others.
On a side note, we acquired a licence from Jeff, Jack & The Mule Music, a Texas, USA based company, publisher of famous country hits like ''Six Days On The Road'', ''Ol' Red'' or ''My First Taste of Texas''.

Numerous stars will attend the show including Joyce Jonathan, Tal, David Guetta, Stromae, Black M, Kendji Girac, Kyo, Indochine, London Grammar, Ariana Grande, Sia, Avicii, Ed Sheran, Coldplay, One Direction...
Finally, Karaoke Version has this year again been chosen by Fremantle Media as music supplier for the X-Factor Australia series.
Surprising effects of karaoke
A recent study from the American Psychiatric Nurses Association showed that karaoke had a positive impact on... patients with a psychiatric condition.
As surprising as it sounds, one karaoke night a week statistically proved to reduce the amount of medication necessary and the level of stress for the patients involved.
They also started to be more involved in group therapies.
Although less developed in occidental countries, this practice has been approved in several psychiatric centers and youth centers in Japan where karaoke originates.
Documentary ''Karaoke la Machine Enchantée''
Recisio and its partner Tency Music have taken part into the making of a documentary on the worldwide Karaoke phenomenon, directed by French reporter Thomas Cazals. The film will be first broadcasted on Arte channel in November 2014.
