Great Performances - Rockapella Sings Ellie My Love

Ok, I admit: I've got contemporary a cappella on the brain right now. We just had a combined rehearsal of the two summer Project-Philly a cappella group last night, and we're in the final 3 days of Project-Philly's Kickstarter campaign (we only need $230! Please help if you can).


Today's Kickstarter update featured a classic Rockapella arrangement sung by the current incarnation of Rockapella. While watching that video from their recent Japan tour, I saw this one on the sidebar. "Ellie My Love" is one of my favorite originals that Rockapella has put out. Scott Leonard wrote and sings lead on this track, and this performance is rather subdued than the album cut in terms of vocal pyrotechnics. This rendition puts an even sweeter touch on a touching ballad.


As I become more involved as an a cappella singer in my spare time, both performing with live groups and in recording and mixing my own a cappella tracks, I appreciate all that much more the showmanship, skill, and microphone handling technique that Scott displays in this video.
