So I decided to make a title called obsession list for things that I obsessed with. And this is my first obsession list!
Number 1 Obsession List:
Yeah, really late to recognize this group, but really, after watching it, you'll love it!
Pentatonix is an American a cappella group of five vocalists from Arlington, Texas. The group won the third season of The Sing Off competition on NBC in 2011. The members are Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola

Pentatonix is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale or mode with five notes per octave. The group believed that the scale's five notes matched their membership. They replaced the last letter with an x to make it more appealing. Their inspiration influenced from pop, dub step, electro, reggae and hip-hop.
Generally Scott, Mitch and Kirstie who mostly sing the lyrics, Avi is the bass and Kevin is the beatboxer. Both Kevin and Avi also have beautiful voice, sometimes they also got the sing part and they're the one who sing the 'music', awesome!
I like them because without any music instrument they can make such an awesome arrangements and their songs really reflect them. Their arrangements are so beautiful, sometimes give me chills when hearing it. And on live performances, they really sing it flawlessly, without any music instruments, just voice, how cool's that?
This are my favorite videos from them:
Pentatonix - Daft Punk
Pentatonix - Say Something (A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera cover)
Pentatonix - Can't Hold Us (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cover)
Pentatonix - Carol of the Bells
They've released 3 albums, contents of their album mostly covers but there's also their original song called "Run to You". The first one is PTX Vol. 1, and then they released PTXmas and the present one is PTX Vol. 2. Almost all of their covers went viral on youtube and they also had tour recently :D
My favorite member from Pentatonix is Mitch Grassi. Definitely he's the first high voice singer that I like, especially when he reached the high notes in "Can't hold us", AWESOME! Really like him cause his awesome voice, so adorable!
And also Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi have their own youtube channel called SUPERFRUIT, I recommend you to watch and subscribe for it. They're so funny and spontaneous. There's a video where they did Beyonce album mashup, so beautiful, even Beyonce tweeted to them and said that they're so flawless singing that song! <3
Here's the video, enjoy!
Sorry, cause this is my first time putting videos in the blog so I don't know how to adjust the size or have it full screen, sorry for the small video :( Can anyone tell me how to adjust a video from youtube? Thanks.
I hope you guys like it!
Thank you and have a nice day!
