Takasa's You And Me the Estonian way

It's a well know fact Estonians like to sing, live to sing. So when this coverversion of the 2013 Swiss entry You And Me by Takasa  was recorded it was no problem to get 400 people to join in. The singers are from the Kärdla Uhisgümnaasium, which I guess is an Estonian education hotspot of some sorts. Nice and a funny video.
In Estonian the song is titled Ikka Jääd Sa Minuga which means something like Will you still be with me.

Having 400 people doing a Eurocover may well be a record (The Kärdla's think so and I'm not arguing)
Takasa (short for Them Of The Salvation Army) are breaking one of two records in Eurovision this year, at 95, Bassplayer Emil Ramsauer is the oldest artist to grace the Eurovision stage.
The other record is by Ukraine who are parading the tallest ever person on the stage.

Eurovision 2013 is imminent. For details on all this years entries, releases, recordings, charts and other trivia, please grace The Malmö Collection with a visit.
Eurocovers also has a bit about Bonnie.
