House of SingStar Singing Marathon
Give it up for Southampton, UK. About 50 brave souls will sing every SingStar song on the PS2 and PS3 discs in the order in which they were released. All of them. One after the other. Non-stop.
Before phoning the loony bin, hear them out (get it?). They are doing it to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The singing marathoners will be comprised of friends and family of the organizers, but we can all get in on the fun (and donate of course) through their website houseofsingstar.co.uk.
In what may very well be one of the last words she will vocalize a-melodically for a long time, hostess Lucy Calvert commented:
Never have the words ‘I wonder’ led to such an undertaking. What started out as an idea to bring a group of friends together for a night of SingStar, has now turned into something much, much bigger. The support we have been receiving is fantastic and we can’t wait to get going.
Neither can we. It appears it is all about charity this month. First our own DolphGB jumped out of an airplane for GamesAid (spoiler: he made it), Rock Band offered the PAX Track Pack for Child's Play, and now House of SingStar sings their hearts out for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Never has September been such a good month for charity.
