Porirua College students Tiresa Foma'i, Rosetta Lopa and Anastasia Sirila posted a video of them singing the anthem last Monday, following the strong criticism American singer Crystal Collins received for her tuneless rendition at a Kiwis game.

A petition has been launched to get the girls to sing for an All Black game in September. 

Rosetta Lopa said on TVNZ1's Breakfast this morning the hype around the video had caused it to be "such a surreal week".

"To get that amount of support from New Zealand, and worldwide, it's just a dream come true."

They said they would "love" to perform for any sporting event.
