SPECIAL DECEMBER EVENT
These 12 college guys have a passion for singing, goofing off, doing weekly cookouts at their leader's parents' house and serenading local sorority girls. They all chose to go to the University of Kentucky so they could be part of the 20-year-old collegiate singing group, acoUstiKats. With their very different personalities, each 'Kat brings something fun to the group. Together, they think they have what it takes to be the next "Sing-Off" champs. And, since Evan's mom is their choreographer, these guys have the moves to impress! Most importantly, they want to put University of Kentucky on the map for its a cappella abilities.
Calle Sol is a collection of six professional musicians who have crossed paths at auditions on the small island of Puerto Rico. They share a love for their Latin style and background but dream of breaking into the American music market. Although they've only been together a few months, they are fired up and determined to cross over as a group not only with their amazing vocals, but also their secret weapon: two professional dancers to spice up the stage.
Element is an all-female group of 10 hailing from across the country. They share a passion for singing and have been performing since they were young. They all moved to New York City to follow their showbiz dreams. To make ends meet, they work normal day jobs to pursue their musical aspirations. They may look sweet on the outside, but don't be fooled - these ladies are New Yorkers through and through. They say if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.
The Filharmonic is a diverse group of talented male Filipino singers. They all love promoting their culture and R&B from the '90s! Apparently, Filipinos love the music of the '90s, so The Filharmonic gives them what they love. They want to create a new style based on their culture, their love for the '90s and their diversity of talent.
Home Free is an all-male group that stays busy performing shows across the county. They often travel by RV and have become close during their travels. They're professionals and they make a living by singing. They've sung together so long, their voices blend harmoniously together, which they think gives them an advantage.
This group first formed more than 50 years ago and is steeped in the tradition of Ivy League a cappella. These groups are some of oldest in the country and are known for being classically trained, perfectly polished, technically great... and incredibly formal! The Princeton Footnotes are setting out to show the world their new and creative arrangements, but will it be enough to put them in the top of the "Sing-Off" class? They want to show the world that this Ivy League a cappella group isn't stereotypical. They can pay homage to tradition but still be fun and relevant.
Each member once hoped to become a professional musician, only to put those dreams aside to raise and support their families. In 2005, the leader of Street Corner Renaissance was asked to put together a doo-wop group to perform a gig. This "one gig" turned into almost a decade of performances and a second act for these five singers. Their roots in doo-wop and homage to singing on street corners have provided them with a solid foundation. They are ready to show these new kids on the block what evolved a cappella sounds like.
This eclectic group of men and women hail from all over, but most of the group lives in Dallas. With professional careers at stake, most of these members have quite the resume, touring with well-known artists as background singers. Most of the group members are friends who met in Dallas, but some of them don't even know each other and were all brought together by their group leader, Chelsea! They just began practicing together but have never performed together. These established singers are willing to put their careers on the back burner and let their talents propel them to the forefront. With a passion for gospel music, they have faith that their group will take the stage by storm, even if their first performance will be on the "Sing-Off" stage!
For these high-schoolers with big dreams of making it in the world of music, getting on the show is like living in a fairy tale. The group formed in 2011 at the Oakland School for the Arts and quickly broke out as a group to keep an eye on. They won the international championship for high school a cappella two years in a row. They are a tightly knit group who are like brothers and sisters. They are the youngest group in the competition, but you would never know it. They want to represent Oakland in a positive way through music and the arts..
VoicePlay began with three high school friends who bonded over singing through the halls of their high school. After graduation, this small group quickly grew to five as they began to do the theme park circuit of Orlando. Their love of the stage took them on tour across the U.S., but eventually brought them back to Orlando. These five guys realized they were missing a woman's touch... so they called in Honey LaRochelle, an accomplished background singer from the same theme park circuit. Now together with a whole new sound, they're ready for the spotlight on their biggest stage yet!
