They have percussion without drums. They have a rhythm section without a bass. The only instruments on stage belong to the nine voices of the nationally renowned a cappella group Vocal Point. Hailing from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Vocal Point gives stunning, high-energy performances that won them the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and a faithful following throughout the world. The group competed on NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2011. Each week, Vocal Point and other a cappella groups performed and were judged by recording artists Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles, and Shawn Stockman. Vocal Point finished as one of the top five final groups on this nationally televised competition.
With a varied repertoire and a wide range of vocal possibilities—and seeming impossibilities—these crowd-pleasers have it all: rock, pop, country, jazz, and R&B all mixed into the time of your life. This nine-man group takes the songs you hear on the radio, retools them, and delivers a new rendition, complete with all the complex instrumentation done entirely with their mouths. Their family-friendly show is a toe-tapper, and their performance is a showstopper. Each Vocal Point member displays musical ability, creativity, and stage experience—a combination which adds up to original, skillful, and spirited performances. “Well that’s about the most professional group at the collegiate level anywhere,” says Deke Sharon, founder of the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America (CASA) and Vocal Producer of NBC’s The Sing Off. “Seriously, that’s as close as anyone could ever get to being a rock star.”
