More than a thousand singers are in Albany this weekend for a convention at the Empire State Plaza.
The Sweet Adelines of New York and New Jersey gathered on the steps of the State Capitol Friday afternoon for a mass sing.
City officials expect the visitors to spend more than $875,000 dollars on food and lodging before their convention ends on Sunday.
