A British Columbia singer broke a Guinness World Record when she managed to sing a C1 note -- the lowest C note on a standard piano -- and set a record for the lowest vocal note by a female. Joy Chapman said she has always had a wide vocal range, leading to her often being asked to sing the male portions of songs. Chapman said her niece encouraged her to go for the world record after discovering the previous lowest note sang by a female was a D2, the second-lowest D note on a piano. She said it took several attempts to break the record, after facing problems including the low-emitter on the microphone failing to pick up her low notes.
Chapman posted a video to YouTube showing the moment she broke the record.
