Singstar 24 hour Endurance Challenge For Charity. He Must Be Bonkers!

We just received a rather touching piece of news fall through our digital flap here at GameGrin. A user named Julian Hill got in contact to inform us of his "slightly bonkers gaming related Guiness World Record attempt" in order to raise money for the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

His chosen activity? 24 hours of constant Singstar performances. Now he has personal motivation to take on such a challenge as his daugter was born with a congenital heart condition, Tetralogy of Fallot back in April 2010. In laymans terms this means the heart has a reduced ability to circulate oxygenated blood. This required risky open heart surgery in order for Amelia to survive past a single year of life, many days of stress and nerves ensued as Julian and his wife waited for little Amelia to pull through the procedure and recovery process..

Needless to say this was successful and Amelia and bouncing with beans, so in order to repay his gratitude and to raise awareness to just how awesome this Childrens Hospital is, Julian will be performing this record attempt at the Ambassador's Bloomsbury Hotel, London on the 13th of April 2012. This has the full support of Great Ormong Street and Sony have kindly donated all the equipment Julian needs to belt out those ballads.

Now what you can do to help out is watch the video if you haven't already, visit Julian's Youtube Channel, and visit his JustGiving donations page and throw him some coins for this great cause. Is you happen to be in the London area on the 13th of April then pop by to support the record attempt, even if it's 3AM.
