Wilmington man breaks record for singing karaoke

WILMINGTON -- A Wilmington man may have set a new world record for singing Karaoke.

Before, the record for singing was 38 hours straight.  Anthony Lawson broke that Tuesday morning, after singing for more than 39 hours.

Lawson started singing Sunday and was allowed to let his vocal chords rest for five minutes every hour.

People cheered him on as he sang his songs at 16 Tapps on Princess Street in Downtown Wilmington.

Lawson used his singing fest as an opportunity to raise money for Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
