Indian Man Sings For 80 Hours (Video)

Note to amateur crooners: don't try this at home.

A professional singer in India sang continuously for 80 hours this week in order to set what should be a new world record. The previous Guinness World Record was for 76 hours of singing.

Rajesh Burbure, from Nagpur, sang nearly 1,000 songs over the 80 hours. He had been practicing for the record attempt for six months. During the 80 hours, he took a 15-minute break every four hours.
