Russian musicians are going to set a Guinness Book record, the singer Alsou has reported in Instagram.
For this purpose they will try and sing the world’s longest song lasting for 48 hours. The 5775 project was initiated by the producer Igor Sandler. The name of the action is related to the expected number of participants.
When selecting the song the project founders wanted this song to be understandable to anybody and be a favourite around the world. The song Hallelujah by the legendary Canadian singer and songwriter Leonard Cohen met all these requirements. It is a reminder that about three hundred covers of the song in different languages have been recorded. On September 21, 2014 Leonard Cohen will turn 80 years old.
Alsou, Buranovsky Babushki, Joseph Kobzon, Balagan Limited, Diana Gurtskaya, Larisa Dolina, Garik Sukachyov, the TV host Roman Budnikov, and many others will take part in the project.
