Awareness Months

Zoo After Dark: Relationship Karaoke

  • Belt out your favorite songs at Relationship Karaoke! But as an audience member, you’re still involved! Music influences us in many different ways. Just like food and the care we take in ensuring that we have all the nutrients we need to give us energy and brain power, music can play a similar role! Thus, it’s important to evaluate our consumption of music and the messages the songs are sending. Join SPEAK and OSA for a round of Relationship Karaoke.
