Appreciate help so far
It is often said that the hardest part of video is getting good audio.
I assume your TV is in an area where the show is taking place so the audience will be hearing the live music and narration. They don't need the TV sound. Turn the sound (volume) on the TV to off or "mute".
The camera will continue to record.
If you are in a situation where you can't control the TV, they you have to do it at the camera. I think you will have to experiment with a manual setting that is low enough to prevent feedback but high enough to still record.
If none of this works, you may have to use a separate sound recorder of the type popular with musicians. A company named "Zoom" makes a few.
If your are trying to create a production quality music video, it will never happen with the onboard mic in your camera, no matter what you do.
