The UO Black Law Students Association will hold its first-ever Soul Karaoke event Saturday, Feb. 23, as part of Black History Month.

The event will be held at Viking Braggot Co., 2490 Willamette St. Doors open at 7 p.m., and karaoke singing begins at 8 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

Soul Karaoke is a way to honor African-American contributions to soul music during Black History Month. Songs by The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and The Supremes are among those that will be played.

People are encouraged to dress in disco or soul costumes, and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes and performances. Doorbuster prizes also will be given to the first 25 patrons, and free appetizers will be offered while they last.
