Pentatonix Team Up With Macy's For All-School A Cappella Challenge

Schools can submit an a cappella performance video of “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5; three schools will win $25,000 each

Pentatonix show off how to perfectly cover The Jackson 5‘s “I Want You Back” in this new Macy’s All-School A Cappella Challenge promo.

The group — Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kevin Olusola, Mitch Grassi, and Kirstie Maldonado — are helping Macy’s build the hype of the challenge for schools to have a chance to win $25,000.

Starting in September, schools across the country can submit an a cappella version of “I Want You Back” for a chance to win. Students, faculty and staff of schools nationwide can enter a video performance of the song, unaccompanied by any music or instruments.

Three $25,000 prizes will be awarded – one to a school in each of the following levels: elementary through middle school level, high school level and college level.

The video must be one to three minutes in length, with at least three participants in the ensemble, and be performed on school property. The a cappella performance must be solely performed by vocal technique, but can be accompanied by sound from beatboxing or through other human parts, such as clapping hands or snapping fingers.

An adult school representative or faculty member can upload the video via Macy’s YouTube channel and enter the school into the challenge from September 8th through October 9th.
Entries will be evaluated based on musicality, performance and execution.

The winners will be revealed via youtube.com/macys in early November.


Macy’s A Cappella Challenge is on!
