Pentatonix is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale with five notes per octave, representing the five members of the group. The last letter was replaced with an x. Very cool.
Although the quintet derives its influences from pop, reggae, hip hop and classical music, Pentatonix & Dolly Parton's Jolene won a Grammy this year for Country Duo or Group Performance. Check this out to see why...
Whether the original artist is able to appear with Pentatonix or not, the renditions are authentic, precise and sure to provoke chills and/or tears in me. I had a difficult time choosing which of two videos to include here, so, when you have the time, enjoy Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and this medley of the one and only Michael Jackson library of songs...
In fact, I invite you to check out their repertoire of songs. It's developed into quite an amazing collection in six years.
I know readers like Elyse, Genna, Martie, Paula, Ruby, Sannel, Shauna and others will enjoy spending time getting lost in these musical memories. If this is your first taste of Pentatonix, enjoy and savor every musical note.
Until next week, wishing you the magic of music that pleases your ears,
