Viral Porirua trio to sing anthem at domestic rugby final

Three Porirua College singers whose rendition of the New Zealand national anthem went viral will sing at a domestic competition rugby final.

Le ART, made up of Anastasia Sirila, Rosetta Lopa and Tiresa Foma'i, gained attention after posting their rendition of the anthem on Facebook, which has since gained over 980,000 views.

It followed American Crystal Collins' botched attempt during the Kiwis' league test against England, which Collins later apologised for.

While an Action Station petition attempted to get the group to lead the anthem at the All Blacks vs South Africa test match in Wellington on 15 September, the trio told NZME they were "blessed" to be offered the opportunity.

"We enjoy singing and putting up videos for our friends and family to enjoy so the fact it went viral is still something we're coming to terms with".

The game the group will sing at is yet to be confirmed, but the girls' mentor Jonny Viliamu said "It's perfect for them and they are so excited".
