Swapna Abraham, an Indian woman in Dubai has completed her record bid to sing 1,000 songs in 1,000 days, with all songs written, composed, sung and recorded entirely by her. She has been recognized by the Golden Book of World Records for four awards, including the “quotidian feat of composing, producing and publishing a song ‘live’ incessantly for 1,000 days from April 8, 2017, to January 2, 2020.”
She is also going to apply to the Guinness World Records for “the most number of songs in a digital album.” In reality, she has sung more than 1,000 songs a day as she also sang an additional song for children over the 1,000 consecutive days - plus a third, fourth, or fifth song on many of the days. Once she even managed to complete 22 songs in one day.
At the concluding ceremony of her successful attempt, held at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, followers from the US, Australia, and India joined to hear her last live song. One fan even registered her name as a star – a celestial star. “One person from the US did an online registry for a star under my name and gave me a certificate with the coordinates for the star. It was all so overwhelming.”
