When most people think of the music genre acapella, they usually picture boring unmemorable music without instruments. It’s not a style of music linked to being engaging or remotely cool.

But shows like NBC’s the sing off, in America, are bringing acapella into the spotlight, with groups from all over the country showcasing their vocal talent on the stage. This popularity reached its peak when series three winners Pentatonix showed the world their unique music.

After winning series three of the sing off, Pentatonix have been on multiple worldwide tours and have even started a YouTube channel, http://ift.tt/TV31Qu which currently stands close to six and a half million subscribers. On their channel they upload original tracks and covers of top 40 tracks, giving them a unique spin and creating some truly gripping musical moments within each song.

They also have their own website, http://ift.tt/1upFFSh telling everyone all the need to know about the group, as well as a store for merchandise.

Pentatonix who have recently released their third EP titled, ‘PTX Vol. 3′ continue to gain popularity worldwide and to expand their global appeal have even released a song in French. With their multi-talented members and incredible vocal arrangements, there is no doubt that Pentatonix are making acapella popular again.
