Warm up the vocal chords

FOR those who thought they had wormed their way out of lending their voices to a Guinness world record singing attempt, think again.

This Sunday, the rescheduled Thank You Bundy Region Festival at the showgrounds is going to be bigger and better than first anticipated – and your voice, whether loud or soft, is still needed.

Bundy musician Pete O’Brien and his song We All Live in the Same Town will be leading the way, as Bundy prepares to make history with the most people singing to the tune of one song – which requires 623 strong voices to break the existing record.

Mr O’Brien said many people were disappointed when the concert was postponed earlier in the month, but it had drawn a lot more interest to the world record attempt.

“We’re looking at massive crowds,” he told the NewsMail yesterday.

Record attempt singers are asked to register prior to 1pm before the world record attempt about 2.30pm.
