Björk’s Nature Karaoke Marathon Continues

The campaign group Voice of the Nation, which includes singer-songwriter and environmentalist Björk, decided to carry on with its karaoke marathon this weekend to continue collecting signatures for the petition to have Iceland’s natural resources be in public ownership.

The 35,000 goal has already been passed—which is what Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir said was the minimum required in order for the petition to be taken seriously—and now the campaign group is hoping it can become the largest petition in Iceland’s history, a press release states.

Today and tomorrow karaoke events will take place in Egilsstadir in the east, Stykkishólmur in the west and Höfn in the southeast. Yesterday, people sang for nature in the Reykjanesbaer municipality in the southwest.

According to the press release, the atmosphere was good at the Nordic House in Reykjavík last weekend. People queued up for the microphone and to ensure that there would never be a silent moment, Björk sometimes took the stage herself.
