Not long ago, Eric Nam appeared at a karaoke room and sang his comeback track “Can’t Help Myself” and scored 99 points. At that point, he exchanged his score for 990,000 won (about $898) and donated the money to children with hearing loss.
This was part of a challenge hosted by Genie and they have raised more than 5.8 million won (about $5300) so far. The money is given to support newborn infants born with hearing loss and 10,000 won is given for each karaoke score point.
Eric Nam says, “I wish I could participate in more campaigns where you can give people hope through singing. I had fun singing and dancing, it was as if I had come with my friends to go karaoke.”
The Genie Music Challenge has been running for four months and up until now the artists that have participated include Akdong Musician, Crush, F(x)‘s Luna, SHINee‘s Jonghyun, and TWICE.
