The official Youtube Channel of The Old Path (“Ang Dating Daan” in Tagalog) – youtube.com/theoldpath – posted today the full 15-minute performance of the Ang Dating Daan Chorale during its official bid for the “Largest Gospel Choir” title from the Guinness World Records.
The Members Church of God International, which celebrated the 35th anniversary of its radio, television and internet program, Ang Dating Daan, on October 12, 2015 at Smart-Araneta Coliseum, was the same date where the Ang Dating Daan Chorale performed before the Guinness World Records.
Before the program ends, the Guinness World Records awarded to the Ang Dating Daan Chorale the “Largest Gospel Choir” title, a new world record in its category.
The Guinness adjudicator Fortuna Burke Melhem has announced 8,688 gospel choir members participated in the attempt, which was more than double last year’s world record title holder.
On Twitter, the official Twitter account of The Old Path – twitter.com/theoldpathtv – has launched a live conversation for the launch of the video on Youtube.
As early as 10 AM, the hashtag #ADDLargestGospelChoir was trending at No. 8.
The special Ang Dating Daan anniversary program was a celebration not only of the singing of praise music for the Lord. It as well served as a venue for public charity efforts of the MCGI for the persons with disabilities or PWDs.
