Singers Attempt 'Longest Marathon Karaoke By Multiple Participants'

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. You know, I thought it was special when some friends and I sang karaoke in Manhattan for nine straight hours. Yeah, whatever. In India, some singers have been going for a world record for the longest marathon karaoke by multiple participants. News18 in India reports the group belted out thousands of songs and passed a record set in China of 792 hours. The singers in India are about to hit a thousand hours. You know, don't stop believing.
