Australia it’s time to warm up your voices and get together with friends or family for Australia's Biggest Singalong, live on SBS, Saturday 5 June at 8.30pm.

An Australian television first, this special night will bring the nation together in song, with hosts Julia Zemiro and Miranda Tapsell adding their voices to the mix.

Australia's Biggest Singalong is a two-hour live event guided by Pub Choir choirmaster, Astrid Jorgensen, who will teach us all to sing a timeless Aussie classic, Throw Your Arms Around Me by the legendary Hunters and Collectors.
