New in the Contemporary A Cappella Series Thursday, April 07, 2011

According to the Contemporary A Cappella Society, “contemporary a cappella” is a moniker used to describe the idiom of popular a cappella (voices only - no instruments) that arose during the mid- to late 1980s, and now spans a wide variety of styles including rock, pop, R&B, hip-hop, country, jazz, etc.  Here are just a few of the newest publications from master a cappella arranger Deke Sharon:

A soulful tenor solo soaring over rhythmic four part harmonies brings the Marvin Gaye Motown classic I Heard It Through the Grapevine to life. A perfect mid-set song to show off your group’s ability to groove.

I'll Stand By You is a modern ballad that translates well from small ensemble to large chorus, with a timeless message and powerful harmonies. The solo can be sung by an alto, soprano or tenor. Great for graduations and other events.

With rich harmonies, delicate arpeggios and a soaring, heartfelt melody, the showstopping Bonnie Raitt ballad I Can't Make You Love Me makes a perfect penultimate number for your women's ensemble.

A modern classic, the Cyndi Lauper ballad Time After Time is perfect for an intermediate women’s ensemble, ready to tackle gentle arpeggiations and delicate parallel harmonies.
