Crowning a Chicago karaoke champion
It's down to the final six for the Chicago Sings Karaoke Competition.

What they sang: To get to the finals, Jaleel Amir sang "What You Won't Do for Love" by Bobby Caldwell.
- Lauren Gaines belted out "Tennessee Whiskey" by Chris Stapleton, and Brandon Dodson serenaded the crowd with "If I Ever Fall in Love" by Shai.
The intrigue: The singers are not revealing their song choices for the big final at Park West on Sunday.
- Doors open at 5pm, and admission is free.
Full disclosure: The Axios Chicago team performed but for some reason didn't make it out of the first round. They must have lost our number. 🤣
