Ah….we’ve hit that week of the year where Halloween smashes into Christmas. We promise to keep it *mostly* non-holiday around her until it’s actually the holidays, but forgive us if we sneak in a good one every now and then!
What better way to celebrate the holiday mashup week of the year, than with a tune from The Nightmare Before Christmas?
Anytime of year is a good time for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but Halloween was a great time for Backtrack to drop this new video. Especially when paired with the announcement of their Holiday album available now on Spotify.
What better way to announce auditions for A Cappella Academy 2020 but with the release of videos from 2019? Check out the first three releases from last summer’s campers. Yeah, don’t worry – we want to quit a cappella, too.
The first, from the Academy Choir directed by Rob Dietz:
Evergreen by YEBBA performed by Vivace, directed by James Rose and Marisa Esposito:
Mueva Los Huesos by Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band performed by Cloud 9, directed by Amanda Taylor and Sean Patrick Riley
Acaville had the pleasure of debuting this song with an interview with Daniel Barke, but just in case you missed it. More YEBBA, more awesome a cappella.
Adding a Halloween-feel to this iconic Britney tune, this Texas-based group adds some neon for that extra glow. Live in Austin, TX? They are also auditioning.
Winner of “Outstanding Aesthetic” at NACC 2019, All-Night Yahtzee gave us this treat of their entire competition set from 2019.
This quartet out of Australia certainly wins best use of the “wind machine” with their George Michael cover.
TONIGHT at 8 pm Eastern/5 pm Pacific, we have a 3-hour special highlighting the songs and groups that were selected for Voices Only 2019! Hear the amazing tunes that made it on to the album, along with interviews from:
