Hello, my name is Rusty. You can use any "dynamic" mic with that keyboard. As long as it doesn't require phantom power, it will work. I recommend a Shure SM58, or an Audix OM2. Feel free to go with a cheaper mic, such as Audio Technica, or similar brand. You can get a really cheap mic with a 1/4" cable already connected, and it will work just fine. Basically, you're not limited to a certain type of mic, you just have to use the adapter to make it work.
Connect a standard XLR cable to the microphone, and you'll need this adapter to make it work with your piano:
