A gathering of men <sing><sings>

Hi there. I have a doubt (and actually, a dispute) regarding the following sentence.

"A gathering of hasidic men SING a cappella".

Is SING correct or should it be SINGS? Not sure if the singular of "a gathering" or the plural of "men" should be followed.

Thank's in advance for your help.

    You can either think of gathering of Hasidic men as a (singular) unit of men, or as several (plural) individuals.

    I would personally naturally say ' . . . sing a cappella', but others might go with 'sings.'
