New Zealand group wows crowd by bursting into the haka at barbershop competition

The Nashville International Convention of barbershop singing witnessed something pretty special this weekend, all thanks to a group from New Zealand.

New Zealand group wows crowd by bursting into the haka at barbershop competition

The Vocal FX from Wellington were mid-performance in their Glee-style medley when they broke into James Brown’s ’Living in America’.

However, after singing the first line they decided to pay tribute to their own heritage and launched into their own version called ’Living in New Zealand’.

It was then the group broke into their traditional war dance the haka - made famous by the New Zealand rugby team - to delight the crowd.

The performance saw the group named the sixth best barbershop chorus in the world.

To be honest, we think they should have come higher than that after such a brilliant showing.
