It’s hard to express just how much I love a cappella music. My undergrad degree is in Vocal Performance, but of the solo variety, I never quite had what it took to sing in an a cappella group, even if I loved what they were all doing. I think that, more than anything else explains my absolute love for NBC’s The Sing Off, which premiered its third season last night. Featured in the eight groups that performed in the 2-hour block last night was Howard University’s Afro Blue jazz ensemble, a marvelous vocal group of incredible talent.
They absolutely knocked it out of the park last night, so we’ve included the video below the cut here for you to enjoy. They’re singing Corinne Bailey Ray’s “Put Your Records On”, and they completely nailed it.
Congrats, Afro Blue! They’ll be back in two weeks for the next round.
