All the feels! Like a prayer turned into an anthem during these trying times!


Global (05 January 2020) – This could possibly be the most epic Zoom meeting ever! 800 musicians from 55 countries – including South Africa – joined in harmony to sing “Nearer, My God, To Thee”.

Vocal Point is BYU’s world-renowned all-vocal ensemble and has earned acclaim the world over, including being identified as one of “greatest college a cappella groups of all time.” In 2006 the group took home the title of International Champions of College A Cappella, and the following year were voted the nation’s favourite male collegiate a cappella group by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America.

The group also appeared on NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2011, where they finished in the top 5. Since then, Vocal Point has won numerous CARA Awards, the equivalent of a Grammy Award in the a cappella industry. Additionally, in 2017 Vocal Point won an Emmy award for their TV Christmas Special “Christmas Under the Stars”.

Most recently, Vocal Point’s online popularity has exploded, with their music reaching people from literally every corner of the globe. With over 100 million views on their YouTube channel, Vocal Point has become the most-watched college a cappella group in the world.
