An Auckland woman has tonight set a new world record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.

The Stevie Nicks impersonator sang for more than two days straight, but it is not the first time she has had to complete the feat.

Last December Karen Davy sang for 47 hours to break the record, but the papers to prove it were lost in the mail en route to the Guinness World Record head quarters in London.

Ms Davy says she was heartbroken to hear the papers had been lost.

“When the records were lost, I actually couldn't believe it would be my luck that that would happen!”

Ms Davy says she moved on from the set back, attempting the record again this year -motivated by the charity she was fundraising for.

“I decided to take a different attitude because we were raising funds for Kidney Kids, I decided not to worry about the Guinness World Record and concentrate on something real,” she says.

More than 200 pages documenting Ms Davy’s attempt will be sent to the Guinness World Record offices this week.

She will have to wait three to six months before she receives confirmation that she is a world record holder.

Ms Davy says she is confident this time it will not be lost in the post.
