Thursday To-Do: 103.7 The Buzz Christmas Celebrity Karaoke

7 p.m. Verizon Arena. $35-$50.

Most of the time, unfortunately, we don't get many opportunities to watch our favorite local celebrities do karaoke. Sure, you might just catch one of your favorite radio reporters at a neighborhood watering hole on a Tuesday night belting out, say, "Coat of Many Colors" by Dolly Parton.

Or perhaps you lucked out and saw a certain corn-fed state representative singing at an Irish pub after the end of a particularly contentious legislative session and were surprised by his angelic tenor and expressive version of "Friends in Low Places." But those are rare and unpredictable occasions. You could go your whole life and never see something like that.

But this Thursday, you can count on catching all manner of local celebs and radio hosts from 103.7 The Buzz offering their most heartfelt manglings, er, unconventional renditions of Christmas classics and other tunes, and they might just get in a joke or two. It's become a holiday tradition around Central Arkansas, and it's all to benefit a great cause — the nonprofit Youth Home, a psychiatric treatment center for troubled adolescents.
