Everyone has a bucket list, right? A list of things they want to accomplish before they die?
Well, I sure do! And one item on mine was to meet the folks from The Sing Off, specifically, my favorite group, Delilah. In case you haven't checked out my "About Me," I'm a huge fan of NBC's A capella show, The Sing Off, and have been watching religiously since the first episode. There is just something so uniquely creative and intriguing to me about A capella music, and this show brings that level of creativity into a whole new stratosphere!
Last Sunday night, my Sing-Off dreams finally came true! Thanks to my awesome roomie, Cassidy, I attended Acapella Palooza, a benefit concert for the Mass General Cancer Center, at the Boston University Agganis Arena. The concert was simply fantastic! Experiencing the groups performing live in front of me was even more amazing than watching them perform live on television each week. And, just when I thought things couldn't get any better, Cassidy and I got backstage access to the concert's after party and met all of the groups that performed such as, the host, Ben Folds, North Shore, The Dartmouth Aires, Pentatonix and of course, Delilah!
Cassidy and I immediately started surveying the room and brainstorming how to tag-team interviews. Cassidy came up with some great questions on the fly and I filmed. We ended up talking to nearly all of the groups, but of course my favorite was Delilah. In a musical category where male participation can usually make or break a group's success, they hold their own and they kick butt while doing it!
Overall, the night was truly a dream come true and I'll definitely never forget it!
