Reason #112: The One Guy Who Wants It Badder Than Anyone Else
People in a cappella groups are, by their very nature, performers. Singers to be sure. Sometimes dancers. Sometimes thespians.
And then there are those people who take things one step further. When the whole group jumps in the air en route to the dub step break down, he’s the guy who jumps a little higher than everyone else. When the choreo gets most frenzied she’s the one who walks the line between show choir ready and so frenzied you think she might explode. When the group sings its most heart-wrenching ballad, he’s the guy you think could actually die of heartache before your very eyes.
Talent, precision, and planning are vital parts of an a cappella group’s success. But there’s also something to be said for sheer desire. Today, we salute the folks who want it--the competition victory, the special award, or simply to put on a really good show—a little more than the rest of us.
I love it!
