AcaVids 7-2-13: Take 6 and SNC tie-in

Yesterday, I talked a little about the reasons why Take 6 and Straight No Chaser deserve acknowledgment and respect in the a cappella community. Today, I’m going to show you some more reasons. I think this is the first time I’ve tied an AcaVids in with a substantive post…it just felt right given the amount of feedback I have received from the post.

    I still have the Jimmy Fallon performance on my DVR. Also, they did Skate for the Heart in 2010, a benefit with pro figure skaters:
