You’ve reached the official website of the Karaoke Industry Alliance of America (KIAA).
This website was designed to facilitate the agenda of the KIAA, and to provide a central location where karaoke enthusiasts as well as professionals can obtain information dealing with all aspects of karaoke.
Not long after the karaoke machine was invented in 1983, Karaoke has been steadily gaining in popularity in the United States, and since that time has without question engrained itself in our culture as can be evidenced by its commonplace occurrences in movies and even everyday conversation. In spite of karaoke’s ever increasing popularity, up until now there has been no organization to promote or help advance the cause of karaoke.
With the countless issues confronting the karaoke industry such as piracy, the inability to legally gain access to new and many classic song titles, as well as unfair competition amongst KJ hosts, karaoke labels and even dealers, the need for such an organization has never been so apparent or crucial as at present.
The KIAA was formed with the above in mind, and we invite you to explore our website and then join us in our efforts in helping to restore karaoke to its rightful place, and bring it to a higher level of legitimacy, not only in the marketplace but in our culture as well.
