Jungle.com founder sings like a canary

Dotcom karaoke

Serial e-entrepreneur Steve Bennett has launched his latest project - a karaoke Web site.

For a £5.99 monthly subscription, surfers can browse through around 2,000 tunes - including old favourites like Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive and Abba's Dancing Queen.

The Singtotheworld site also offers a CD-burning facility at £3 per song.

Bennett, who founded Software Warehouse and Jungle.com, said he wants to snare all karaoke lovers with the venture. But he is especially keen on attracting the music-buying teenybopper and pub-going crowds.

He also aims to add sections for Indian music lovers and Country and Western fans.

"It's great for parties at home, and for people who go to karaoke bars," said Bennett, who claims his own favourite track to sing along to is dodgy 70's ballad 'Love on the Rocks' by Neil Diamond.

Bennett has so far pumped around £350,000 into the site, which he says has netted 1,000 members in its first two weeks of business. ®
