Eleven-Year-Old Canadian Girl Sets Guinness Record

 

Eleven-year-old Capri Everitt from Canada travelled around the world on a mission to raise money for charity and achieve a new Guinness World Records title. Back in November 2015, Capri and her family started her incredible journey in Ottawa, Canada, by singing her home country’s national anthem. From there she went on to achieve the Most national anthems sung in their host countries in one year with an astounding record of 76. Some of the countries she visited included England, Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Croatia, Germany, Italy, India, South Africa, Philippines and Australia. In order to achieve this challenging new record, Capri was required to sing the national anthem of each country in full and in its respective language. To help her learn each song she sought help from locals, visited embassies and watched videos on YouTube. Aside from achieving a Guinness World Records title, the reason Capri set off on this inspiring adventure was to raise money for SOS Children’s Villages. A naturally talented singer since the age of four, in terms of vocal inspiration, Capri cites Taylor Swift as an influence….. Ed
