i learned about icecast and several clients at #opensourcemusicians ( ) ...

this guide and google helped me set up my icecast server that i run locally

IDJC is quite nice, but probably not the best tool for the job... im unclear
as to what the goal is exactly... will you always be playing the track and
singing over it locally?? if so, the latency should be a non-issue..

i would say the best way to do this would be darkice from JACK to an icecast
server... i think the easiest way to do this would be using the B.U.T.T.
(broadcast using this tool) client... IF you need to play the file, and have
others *not* on your local network sing over them, i would suggest looking
at netjack or jacktrip, (but those are difficult to get going) or
the simpler ... mumble is cross-platform
