Although some dread the thought of getting up in front of a crowd and singing a popular song, recent research has shown that there may be some health benefits to getting together with friends for karaoke and even a few cocktails. Singing (on or off key) involves deep breathing which is good for the nervous system and also burns calories. According to a study from Japan, drinking and singing with friends helps to reduce heart disease and strokes. Professor Takeshi Tanigawa from Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine says, “Moderate to light alcohol consumption with high social support is good for your health.
Even though this is just one study based on a select group of males, the proven health benefits of singing combined with the concept that singing in social environments can help to reduce stress and improve health, are great reasons to keep belting those tunes.

Researchers found that moderate drinking in a social environment combined with singing improved cardiovascular health and helped to relieve stress.
The study also found that those with low social support had less healthy lifestyles such as physical inactivity, no job and fewer opportunities for medical checkups. And though an extra drink or two might help you build up courage and think you sound better, always drink in moderation.


If you move while singing, whether playing an instrument, dancing or acting on stage, even more calories will be burned, depending on the intensity of the movement. However, heavy drinking was found to present greater health risks even with social support.
