Pentatonix are taking on the most amazing song yet on their new Classics, Vol IV album!
The group — Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola — revealed the full tracklist on their Twitter today and the first one on the list was Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody”!
From the first moment Pentatonix sing, you are immediately hooked.
There’s no not liking the a cappella group — Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola — who won NBC’s The Sing-Off back in 2011. They went on to three Grammy Awards.
Just after winning their THIRD Grammy, the a capella group — Scott Hoying, Mitchell Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola — were back on stage, giving us a performance that we definitely needed.
The only female artists to be nominated at the 2017 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, are also country artists — and you need to be paying attention to them. There’s a reason they’re nominated.
Kelsea shared in a new interview about being nominated: “It’s the people that love music, do music, judge music, fight for music for a living, saying, ‘We’ve listened to 500 hundred new artists that are eligible this year and we think you’re one of the best five.’ That makes me feel cooler than I have ever felt in my life.”
She added, “I definitely feel like for any female, the odds weren’t necessarily in our favor…we were really maybe underrated a bit in the beginning because we were on this independent label.”
Maren, who is up for three other awards at the event, says the same: “I think it’s a huge step forward for people taking women into consideration because you have to have another perspective on the radio, and I think the Grammys have done a really great solid by recognizing quality art. And I think the girls really brought it this year.”
The group — Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Mitch Grassi – dazzled viewers with a holiday-themed set during A Pentatonix Christmas Special, which aired last week on NBC.
