Have you recently brushed up on your Madonna lyrics, or do you know all the words to R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World As We Know It?" Bust them out at NOLA Cherry Bombs' second annual karaoke party to benefit Sexual Trauma Awareness & Response (STAR), the group which advocates against sexual violence.

The party returns to Igor's Buddha Belly May 19; its first installment took place last summer. The NOLA Cherry Bombs marching and dance group has made a point of hosting events that benefit women-centric organizations — a 2014 event benefited The Birthing Project, which works to improve birth outcomes for women of color.

The party begins at 9 p.m. Friday. Admission is $5. Just for fun, here's a '90s-heavy BuzzFeed list (and accompanying Spotify playlist) of solid karaoke songs.
