Just when we think a week in a cappella couldn’t get any better, we get a week like this one.

Jacob Collier

I’m pretty sure the only way you’re getting me to listen to an 8 minute rendition of Moon River is by having Jacob Collier arrange and sing it. And is that Take 6 we spy?

Voctave

This Orlando group can do no wrong in our book. This time they’ve taken a Disney classic while still making you wonder just where all of those vocal gymnastics and fireworks are coming from. Pre-orders for their new album “Somewhere There’s Music” start on iTunes and Amazon music on June 24th ahead of a July 1st release.

a cappella, Orlando, Disney, singing, music, Voctave, a capella

Face

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Idyllic American countryside. A nod to one of the most iconic music festivals of all time. Colorado’s favorite vocal band. Still need more? Just watch.

MVP

A brand new original song from the ladies Down Under. It’s pretty catchy, if you ask us.

a cappella, Australia, AUSACA, MVP, original music, singing, a capella

The Pennchants

Prince is an artist you cover with caution. However, when you have a soloist like Marjon Enriquez, by all means, cover all things Purple.

Main Street

Enjoy this little ditty from the 2017 BHS International Quartet Champions in honor of Father’s Day.

Biggest lesson learned from this video? More groups should cover Shoshana Bean. Thanks for this little live gem, Prismatics.

Pentatonix

Ok, Kevin included his cello in this cover of “Shallow,” but it’s still as masterful as we’ve come to expect from Pentatonix, so we’ll cheat a little, shall we?

Pitch Slapped

There’s a reason this group is consistently one of the best collegiate groups in the world. They just dropped this little video from their latest album, “Sincerely.” (Yeah, go ahead and download that whole thing. We’ll wait.)

Rip_Chord

Who says all-male collegiate groups can’t do emotions? Rip_Chord captures the pain that comes with love pretty perfectly in their latest release.
