Vocal Point is Brigham Young University's world-renowned contemporary a cappella ensemble. Referred to by some as "an optical illusion for your ears," Vocal Point's inventive style, innovative arrangements, and incredible vocal percussion continue to wow audiences everywhere. They have performed before millions of fans on national television (on NBC's The Sing-Off) and in concerts across the country. While the majority of a Vocal Point concert showcases the group's new take on popular songs from yesterday and today, this CD specifically features music from a part of each concert that is unique to Vocal Point: hymns and inspirational songs.

About the Author
Founded in 1991, Vocal Point is BYU’s 9-man a cappella group. Although Vocal Point was originally founded by students, it was adopted into BYU’s School of Music and continues to entertain audiences with their lively renditions of well known songs. Vocal Point competes annually in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella and placed first in 2006. Other years they have won the right to participate, but resigned because it took place on a Sunday. Vocal Point is currently competing on NBC’s “The Sing Off,” a nationally broadcast a cappella competition between 16 groups from across the US. The judges have loved the BYU signing group and so far have selected Vocal Point to move to the third round of the competition. Since its beginning, Vocal Point has produced multiple a cappella albums. The most recent is “Back in Blue,” their release from 2011 in which they perform favorites such as “I’m Yours,” “September” and “Jump, Jive and Wail.”

I love this album! A couple fof riends referred this to me and I fell in love with it. I love all of the songs on the album. The music flows beautifully. It's hard to believe it's acapella at times. Can't say enough good things about this album.
