While we are all given the opportunity to let our hair down once in a while by bellowing our tonsils down an omnidirectional microphone, when it comes from a person in the public eye, it’s more entertaining.
Exhibit A: former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
While I try and steer clear from any type of political bits and pieces, this takes the cake for ‘it’s not me, it’s you’. Karaoke is meant to be fun, and not to be taken too seriously. At a christmas party held by the National Party, the former PM decided to hop on stage and crank out a little Elvis Presley with Suspicious Minds. Especially with the way he was kicked out of government, the song title is a little co-incidental. You can read the full story at the Sydney Morning Herald here.
After a difficult final week to the political year, Tony Abbott grabbed a microphone and let off some steam at the National Party's Christmas drinks. His song of choice? Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds.
