¡Amo Nota!

I love acapella music.

Those that know me well, know that I have a high appreciation for the human voice heard w/o the benefit of instrumental accompaniment...there's something transcendental about voices blended in perfect pitch and harmony - one of God's gifts to all of us, y'know...

Take 6, Rockapella, and my all-time favorites Sweet Honey in the Rock are all wonderful examples of acapella groups whose music I admire greatly.

In December NBC aired this week-long special called “The Sing Off” featuring acapella groups from around the country.


So you know I’m gonna watch, right?

Carma and I watched that Monday evening, interested in what the groups had to offer – the first one up were these guys from San Juan called Nota.

By the time they finished singing I straight up in my chair and told Carma “Well. THIS is gonna be interesting, huh?”


And they only got better throughout the competition ... each performance just blew me away!!

In the end, I was so glad that they won - looking forward to their first album. Here's to a long and happy career!!
