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.

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.
