Barbershopper and NBC member
sets World Record!

Alan St. Louis from New Hampshire broke a record by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” for the 2,000th time.

Alan St. Louis was honored for his record before the women's basketball game at Southern New Hampshire University.

The record-breaking moment was seven years in the making.

St. Louis has performed the national anthem all over New England.

"I love to sing the national anthem,” he said. “It's a great song. It's a challenge for me, because it is such a difficult song. I love it because all the veterans are proud of it."

St. Louis holds several other records, including singing the anthem over 217 times in his first year and eventually 500 times in a year. He also sang the anthem 600 times at SNHU.

Congratulations Al!
