Exciting news for The Filharmonic fans! The Filipino American a cappella singers, best known for being finalists on season 4 of NBC’s The Sing-Off, are the newest additions to the Pitch Perfect franchise. The boys will join actresses Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson for Pitch Perfect 2, which hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
The all-male a cappella group consists of six talented Filipino singers: vocalists VJ, Joe, Trace and Barry, vocal bass Jules and beatboxer Niko.
According to their official website, the members come from a wide variety of backgrounds in the performing arts including pop, a capella, jazz, opera, theater and classical. In addition, “they honor their Filipino heritage through incredibly nuanced musical performances that are both moving and fun to experience.”
A few months ago, we were simply raving about their breathtaking cover of John Legend’s “All of Me.” Well, the boys are back with two more covers that are, once again, breathtaking.
Check out their cover of “Rude” by Magic, featuring AJ Rafael, as well as their cover of “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit.
