Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill - Third Reading - Part 20

New Zealand votes to legalize same-sex marriage and breaks into song

New Zealand's parliament voted to legalize same-sex marriage today (April 17).
Upon the passing of the third reading—which passed 77 to 44—the gallery broke into song, singing “Pokarekare Ana", a traditional love song.
If the law is given royal assent by the country's governor-general (all but a sure thing), New Zealand will become the 13th country to legalize same-sex marriage.

I learned this song for a school concert in grade 3 I think - & I brought it home. Ten Ma learned it on the ukalali.
