What do you know about a cappella? I have seen Pitch Perfect and I listen to Pentatonix at Christmas so I though I knew about a cappella. Then the Bend A Cappella Festival came to Bend last year and I was blown away by how much I didn't know! Well, it's back again this weekend: February 10-12, and I don't want you to miss out! The Bend A Cappella Festival brings in the best musicians to perform, educate, compete and entertain! It's an amazing opportunity for aspiring artist to learn and for interested viewers to enjoy! Tickets are selling out quickly so go sign up today!
The headliner for the event will be Naturally 7! Naturally 7 has a distinct a cappella style they call "vocal play." With the unique ability to blend their rich harmonies and replicate the sound of instruments, Naturally 7 have gone from quiet success in Europe to the world stage. Their music incorporates a range of styles from R&B to pop, gospel to jazz. The groundbreaking "Ready II Fly" CD featuring the now famous Paris subway YouTube hit, "Feel It (In the Air Tonight)" led to the much-coveted opening slot for Michael Bublé introducing their ground-breaking style to over 4 million people worldwide. They have been invited to perform at the prestigious Royal Variety Performance, the TED conference, BET Honours and at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Week celebrations to mention a very few. Naturally 7 has also teamed up with Quincy Jones and Ludacris for Quincy's CD, "Soul Bossa Nostra." The group has released 10 CD's to date with their most recent being "Hidden in Plain Sight."
