A Cappella Pop Covers

Peter Hollens - Fields of Gold (Ft Tyler Ward & Lindsey Stirling)

OPB: Sting

2 days ago we posted the audio of this collaboration, but Peter has informed me that the version I bought on iTunes was Tyler Ward’s that had guitar in it… The “A Cappella” version is Peter and Tyler’s voices layered over Lindsey’s violin skills… Stupid iTunes mixed the two up and I bought the wrong version…. OOPS :P

If you want to hear the difference check out Tyler Ward’s video here

Peter Hollens, Tyler Ward, and Lindsey Stirling - Fields of Gold

OPB: Sting

I’ve always loved this song, not a cappella to say the least since it features the wonderful Lindsey Stirling on violin and Tyler Ward on guitar but it’s still Peter and we’ve been showing him love from the beginning… Video coming soon :)

Peter Hollens (Ft BYU Vocal Point and BYU Noteworthy) - Kiss The Girl

OPB: Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Alan Menken)

Youtuber and funnyman Stuart Edge recruited Peter Hollens and the male and female groups from Brigham Young University for his latest video where he hits on random girls, pretends to ask for directions and pops up on random couples forcing them to kiss. This video is live and in the moment, no post production involved

BYU Vocal Point - Happy

OPB: Pharrell Williams

Album: Spectrum

I know it’s the IT a cappella song right now, it’s probably the most popular song in the world right now… But it’s SO DANG CATCHY

BYU Vocal Point - Frankie Valli Medley (Walk Like a Man/Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You/Sherry/Who Loves You)

OPB: Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons

I’m a sucker for a good a cappella medley and I’ve always loved the tone of Frankie Valli’s voice. BIG shoes to fill, but the songs flow seamlessly into one another and the soloists really made me feel like I was watching “Jersey Boys”

BYU Vocal Point - Rhythm of the Night

OPB: Debarge

Album: Spectrum

I reached out to the gentlemen in Vocal Point to ask them which track from their FANTASTIC new album I should feature and they said they’d love to hear a review of MY favorite track…. Well, I couldn’t decide on 1 so I’m posting 3! The first review is of the 80’s classic from Debarge “Rhythm of the Night” I chose to feature this track because it was so unexpected!!! Rhythm of the Night has always been one of my guilty pleasures and to hear it mixed into an album with hits by Owl City, Pharrell, Sara Bareilles etc I was pleasantly surprised
