Story

I DID IT!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HYQy7evNPk&feature=g-upl In case you didn't know.... on 13th of April -- 14th of April in the Ambassador's Bloomsbury Hotel London, I completed my challenge. This involved playing the Playstation game SingStar continuously for 24 hours 21 minutes 25 seconds, a total of 314 Songs in that time. Achieving this meant I was awarded the Guinness World Record for "longest video games marathon playing a karaoke game". The whole event was streamed live over the Internet, with nearly 2000 unique viewers watching a grand total of over 500 hours between them. I was viewed in UK, Ireland, France Germany, New Zealand, Japan, America and Australia, with the most popular moment being my final song. In total I have now raised nearly £3000, from over 150 different donations. Don't worry you can still donate just visit: www.justgiving.com/julianhillGOSH Please, Please spread the word about this. Its for a fantastic cause, and 100% of your donations will go directly to Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital and will keep the magic alive! A Little thanks to: The Ambassadors Bloomsbury, London (http://www.ambassadors.co.uk/) Sam Hill who organised the live streaming on the day, and documented everything for the record. FantomenK for the jolly little tune I use at the start (http://www.youtube.com/user/FantomenK) My undying gratitude of course also goes to everyone who sung with me, watched me live, or donated. Without you I would have been an idiot singing non stop for no reason at all!
