How do I turn my love/talent for singing into a career (or at least a side job)?

I love to sing, and not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty good at it too. I have a wide range and a versatile, cross-genre style.
I do karaoke contests every now and then, and I used to be in a show choir that paid a little bit of money. I've thought about doing community musical theatre, but i don't have a lot of time, as I work a regular 9-5 job as well. Also, because I live in Kansas City, there aren't as many opportunities available as there are in larger metropolitan areas.
What other options are there for vocalists to make money? Wedding singer? (I do that for free, for my friends), National Anthem performer?
Perhaps I'm overthinking this...
Thanks for your help & your time!
