They started out as a group of youth in Brooklyn hanging around on street corners and singing a capella just for fun. They have gone on to become the “Undisputed Kings of A Capella.”

They are the legendary Persuasions, known all over the world for their blend of gospel, soul and pop music. The Persuasions will perform at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 19. in the John Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College (CLC).

Discovered in 1968 by music legend Frank Zappa, the Persuasions went on to release a string of commercially successful and critically acclaimed recordings. Their debut album “Straight” was a mix of studio and live recordings. They followed that release with albums such as “Frankly A Capella: The Persuasions Sing Zappa,” “Might as Well: The Persuasions Sing Grateful Dead,” and the critically acclaimed “The Persuasions Sing The Beatles.”
