Busco karaoke de español con voz

Looking for Spanish karaoke videos, especially old popular or children's songs where the lyrics are in Spanish accompanied by vocals. I thought that I'd not only read and pronounce the lyrics but be able to hear how the song should sound. Some that I've found on YouTube tend to be lyrics, backed by instruments, no vocals and assumes you know the melody (which I don't know in most instances)

Here's an example of what I'm looking for:




Your 'ayudar' will be appreciated - Gracias!

Spanish words usually don't go in the same places as they do in English.

Your thread title "Quiero español karaoke con voces" should be "Quiero karaoke en español con voz" (Although not wrong, the plural "voces" might suggest you want several voices for each song.)

"Ayudar" is a verb, not a noun. "Ayuda" is the word you wanted there.

And finally: opening question (¿) and exclamation (¡) marks are not gratuitous. So, "¡Gracias!"

Isn't the point of karaoke that the main voice track has been removed? But I suppose subtitles aren't what you're looking for because you want some indication of which syllable is currently being sung?

You're right, it isn't karaoke that is needed; it's a subtitled voice track and a 'bouncing dot', or something similar, that shows which syllable is being sung.

¡Gracias! Your comments are most welcomed. That's precisely why I am here.

As to karaoke, what I'm looking for is definitely not the standard type (voice track removed), but a hybrid not unlike the video I posted. It’s difficult to sing a song, having little or no prior exposure. At some point I'll be able to do so. I'd love to find a source for English nursery rhymes (whose words I know from being a kid) and sing them in Spanish.

Again - Thank you

Most English nursery rhymes don't translate to Spanish.

I know only a couple of nursery rhymes (canciones infantiles). Below I've posted some links that may have what you're looking for; the words appear on the screen in karaoke style.

The first link is the nursery rhyme I'm most familiar with, but the tune they used in the karaoke version is not the melody I learned.

And here's an imaginative, fun one I'll throw in:

Correct. I do know however, that there are some karaoke cd's where you can turn the voices on and off. ¡O, yo lo soñé!

Hola Rusty,

Thanks for the links to the videos, I loved them all, especially 'Bob esponja' (this is an example of a song that I already know the English lyrics and love singing it in Spanish), the other being 'El Sapo'. When I learn to follow the lyrics and rhythm(speed) of that song I will have accomplished something, all the way having a bit of fun. Thanks again.

Hola caliber1,

Would you recollect the names of any of those karaoke CDs you mentioned or a possible source/lead? Thank you as well.
