Huge Crowded House singalong happens metres from opening ceremony screening

Music 05/04/2018

A massive karaoke group belted out Crowded House just metres from a Commonwealth Games opening ceremony screening at Surfers Paradise on Wednesday.

While the Gold Coast crowd's rendition of 'Better Be Home Soon' might not have been pitch perfect, everyone enjoyed giving the 1980s Kiwi classic a go.

"It's beautiful," one man said after admitting he didn't know the words.

A New Zealand woman behind one of the many microphones said she was "absolutely stoked" to see it come up so she could sing along with her family.

The free karaoke area, located on The Esplanade near Cavill Avenue, has been set up on the beach temporarily as part of the Games festivities.
