    Friday's DR1 News
    Carlos Silver breaks Guinness World Record
    Singing “My Way,” Dominican Carlos Silver achieved his long-sought goal of entering the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest singing marathon. He sang “My Way” when reaching the 106th hour of singing (4 days and 10 hours). He broke the 105-hour record held by Sunil Waghmare of India that was set in 2012.

    Carlos Silver set up shop in a glass enclosure within the Sambil shopping mall on Av. John F. Kennedy in Santo Domingo. He set the new record at 10pm on Thursday, 15 December 2016 and sang for another half an hour. He began his bid for the record on Sunday at 1:30pm. Telesistemas, Channel 11, broadcast the challenge.

    According to reports, Silver was hospitalized to ensure he was hydrated and rested. He did not eat any solid food throughout the challenge.

    His manager, Alberto Zayas said the Guinness Record marks the re-launch of Silver’s singing career and that they were considering the option of making a documentary about the challenge.

    You realize of course, that he was in a glass enclosure in one of the biggest malls here in the city, had an audience the entire time, and went on to sing another half an hour after he broke the record.

    I'm guessing you didn't follow it in the news or on TV?

    I don't understand the urge to sing for that long either.

    Bosch is right.... record NOT broken.... by Carlos Slim
    Slim won a money stacking contest over the holidays in Mexico.


    As for Carlos Silver, I too missed the news.

    Carlos Slim is a Mexican telephone magnate and said to be Mexico's richest person. This appears to be about Carlos Silver, a Dominican singer.
