FRANKENMUTH, Mich. (AP) - Singers have fallen short in an attempt in Frankenmuth to break the Guinness World Records mark for the most people singing Christmas carols.

St. Lorenz Church and School said Monday there were about 500 fewer people than needed at Saturday’s “Christmas in July” event.

They would’ve had to sing carols at 10 or more homes on at least two streets. The current record was set in 2013 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, when more than 1,800 people sang.

Family Life Radio, St. Lorenz Church and School, Tri-Star Bank and Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth teamed up for the Michigan attempt. Postings online from Family Life Radio and Bronner’s thanked the about 1,300 who turned out.

Participants alternately sang “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night” as they went from home to home.
