Let’s Talk A Capella

I bet that whenever anyone hears the word A Capella, they think about Pitch Perfect.

I’m here to help all of you discover the wonderful world that is A Capella!

Let me make something clear, I don’t mean to patronize or make anyone feel bad. No, no no. I just want to gush about my love for this wonderful musical genre.

Because, yes, it is a musical genre.

My lovelies, I will confess that I never knew about A Capella up until two years ago. I discovered it through a friend, and since then I’m proud to say that it’s one of my favorite genres.

Want an easy introduction to A Capella? Watch NBC’sĀ The Sing Off. It’s a reality competition where multiple a cappella groups compete to win a grand prize which is a recording label.

The Sing-Off has “discovered” many great groups, and one of those groups are… *drumroll*

Pentatonix!

Pentatonix is an AMAZING five person a capella group who produces beautiful music. You’d never believe they were a capella because they sound so completely amazing! They are my favorite a capella artists, and basically make a capella cool again. I NEED their new album like I need air.

If you want to learn about Pentatonix’s awesomeness, just subscribe to their YouTube channel, they have AMAZING covers of popular songs.

And, if you’re looking for other A Capella artists, there’s also Mike Tompkins, which does wonderful arrangements of different songs (I LOVE his arrangement of Clarity!). And Peter Hollens who did a collaboration with Linsey Stirling! Check out their channels on YouTube. You won’t regret it.

I’m not going to dismiss Pitch Perfect’s aca-awesomeness, because I loved that movie to bits. Like I said before, I just want to gush about my favorite artists and this amazing genre!

I hope you enjoyed this small insight and check out the music!

Have a Aca-Amazing day! šŸ™‚

    I loved seeing Pentatonix but there were so many great groups on the show. I honestly didn’t know how to chose which was my favorite! Just the other day I was trying to remember the name of the show. Thank you soooo much! I’m glad to see it coming back on.

      I also loved Delilah (girl-power all the way), the Yellowjackets and also the ones who always did a rap (I forgot their names!). But I loved Pentatonix because of the fact that they were only 5 people with a great sound! I’m glad that it’s gonna come back, too! Thanks for stopping by šŸ™‚

      Right? A Capella is just so fun to listen to! I’m always mindblown and asking myself “HOW DO THEY DO THAT?” Thanks for stopping by!
