The a cappella group Pentatonix is comprised of
Kirstie Maldonado, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola. Kirstie, Mitch, and Scott all went to high school
together in Arlington, Texas, and they happened to hear that a local radio station was holding a competition to meet the cast
of Glee. After sending in their audition, they didn't win the contest, but it helped attract interest locally. Soon they were
performing at school, and after they uploaded their video on YouTube, the group got even more exposure.
After high school,
the various members were attending college and Scott Hoying heard about the show The Sing-Off from someone in his a cappella
group at the time, the SoCal VoCals. Because The Sing-Off required at least four members in order to audition for the show,
the friends recruited two more members, so Kevin Olusola and Avi Kaplan became their newest additions. The group met up one
day before the auditions for The Sing-Off, and Mitch Grassi even had to skip his high school graduation ceremony so he could
attend. Well, it sure paid off, because the group successfully auditioned and ended up winning the competition.
to their commercial success, Pentatonix have also made philanthropic efforts since their rise to fame. The group shared their
experiences with bullying and recorded a public service announcement. They also performed two shows in New York in support
of the University of Rochester Yellow Jackets' "United We Sing" Kenya project. They also took part in the A Cappella Palooza
fundraiser, along with Delilah, Dartmouth Aires, and Ben Folds in order to raise money for the Mass General Cancer Center.
Pentatonix's Breakthrough Album
Pentatonix got their start in music when the three original members started singing
together in high school. The group went on to audition for the third season of NBC's The Sing-Off, and they were propelled
to stardom after winning their season. Marking their sweet victory, the group memorably performed "Eye of the Tiger" as their
victory song. Their award for winning The Sing-Off included $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony. Pentatonix hit the
studio to begin working on their first EP, "PTX Vol. 1," which reached number 14 on the Billboard 200 and sold 20,000 copies
in its first week. Their second album, "PTX Vol. 2" entered the Billboard 200 at the number 10 position, and it shot to number
1 on the Independent Albums chart, bringing in 31,000 copies during the week of its release. From high school crooners to
worldwide stars, the Pentatonix have blazed a trail of extraordinary success, and there is no doubt there is even more in
store for this talented a cappella group.
