While we were out enjoy the sun, the sand, the surf, and all of the other spoils of summer, the titans of a cappella still churned out some great new music. Here are the highlights:
There were a lot of mixed feelings about the Lion King remake, but there no questioning the PTX take on this classic song off the soundtrack.
Not to be outdone, the men of Vocal Point released their own Lion King harmonies with their cover of Circle of Life.
It was a busy summer as always for these Singapore superstars and rumor has it there will be even more music coming soon. Get your abbreviated Chinese music history lesson now.
It is almost time to submit your applications for the 2020 ICCA season. Be inspired by the set from the 2019 champions.
They may not have made an ICCA appearance last season, but these collegiate powerhouses did take their talents to Memphis to win the NACC Collegiate Competition.
There’s never a bad time for Earth, Wind & Fire, especially not when covered by m-Pact, who we can’t wait to see in November for the m-Pact Vocal Festival in Kansas City.
SING! Texas is just around the corner, but not before you can relive this gem of an original written by Hannah Lewis.
Plus, they released another new original “Broke My Window.”
This year’s BHS International 5th place medalists have been making quite a slash with their music videos. Have a little fun with this cover from the Goofy Movie, a follow up to their Spiderman Theme Song.
If this is how the ladies of Pitch Slapped are kicking off the new year, we’ve got a lot more amazing music coming our way.
Harmony, Inc. unleashed part of the winning set from the 2018 International Champions. Enjoy “I See The Light” arranged by Kevin Keller.
