Forget auto-tune and backtracks. A cappella is the popular trend this year, not only in mainstream culture (exemplified by hit shows like “Glee” and “The Sing-Off”) but also on campus.
AU’s four a cappella groups showed off their talent on Sept. 7 in front of tightly packed pews in the Kay Spiritual Life Center.
The co-ed group Dime A Dozen, decked out in red and black, performed first. The members sang “Gunpowder and Lead” by popular country artist Miranda Lambert, as well as “Change in My Life” and “All the Above” by Maino.
Blends with Benefits took over the stage next singing the radio hit “Somebody I Used To Know” by Gotye. The crowd roared with laughter during a rendition of the “Pokémon Theme Song” then sobered up when they slowed the tempo down with Coldplay’s tearjerker, “Fix You.”
