In addition to all of the great variety of a cappella you can hear ’round the clock here at Acaville Radio, we’re going to bring you some bonus releases each Tuesday to make sure you’re finding all of the latest and greatest this talented community has to offer.
Here are our favorites this week – and there are a lot of them:
Along with the announcement of their newest Holiday album (coming October 26th!), Pentatonix released their Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired video for “Making Christmas.” Tickets for their “Christmas is Here!” Tour are on sale now – shows kick off in Texas on November 25.
Sweet Adelines International Convention and Competition
Catch up on (or relive!) a stellar week of barbershop from St. Louis. All of the performances are now available on YouTube.
BHS continues to release videos from their 2018 International, including Voctave’s ultimate battle of the sexes with “Anything You Can Do” from Annie Get Your Gun.
One of the most anticipated events of the year – the Association of International Champions comes together during International to feature past quartet winners. It’s quite magical when they all sing together, like they did for this “Dig A Little Deeper” medley.
The 2006 Quartet Champions have STILL got it. Here’s a signature performance of “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket” during their guest performance at the 2018 Central States District Convention.
Ndlovu Youth Choir and Wouter Kellerman
Ed Sheeran sung by a South African youth choir with a flute player mixed and mastered by Bill Hare? It’s every bit as awesome as you think it should be. So much so, we’re including it here, even with the flute!
Just a head of the release of Jams Vol. 2, we’re treated with a preview of “Lady Mine (Bach vs. Beethoven)” which incorporates the classics in a way that only Rockapella can.
It was another big week for DCappella – US tour dates were announced AND they dropped another video – this time for their all vocal version of “Glory Days” from Incredibles 2.
קוינטה וחצי Quinta and a Half
Leading the way for a cappella in Israel, Quinta and a Half released a dramatic video for their cover of Rihanna’s “Diamonds.”
The 2017 AcaOpen Finalists out of the UK just dropped a live looping cover of Bill Wither’s “Ain’t No Sunshine.”
The Bristol Suspensions
A little live video release from one of the top collegiate groups in the UK, we enjoyed this cover of Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande’s “Faith.”
The Eight Tracks
Challenging themselves to create something fun in under an hour, this Boston CAL group channeled OKGo for this quick mashup of Nick Jonas and Taylor Swift. See them LIVE with Fermata Town at Spire Center for the Performing Arts on November 30!
And no videos (yet!), but you should also check out the latest from:
