Background: U-Sing-Along Karaoke was a company based in Westminster, California. Started in the 1990s by a man named Bruce Đoàn (who also produced the series' volumes), this company released volumes of the Vietnamese karaoke music series of the same name, and also sold karaoke equipment in their store. Unfortunately, due to low sales and piracy of their U-Sing-Along series, the company filed for bankruptcy in late 2013-early 2014.

(A note from Gilblitz112: More stuff coming up on this page, I have most of the company's releases on DVD.)
