The Run Off Results: "Happy Ending"

The Run Off

Across the country, and, indeed, around the world, there are numerous a cappella groups who have stumbled upon the very same songs to perform. In some cases it may just be a popular song of the moment. In others, it might be a unique album track that a number of music aficionados agree it might be neat to make their group’s own. Still yet, there are times when a song is just easy to arrange and is, therefore, subject to constant covering.

Whatever the case may be, in The Run Off, The A Cappella Blog brings together three to five different renderings of the same song, and, in the name of sharing different visions, and for the sake of friendly competition, puts them side by side for readers to vote for their favorites. Please feel free to post your rationale in the comments section. Winners will be announced three weeks after the polling begins.

In the most recent edition of The Run Off, we took a look at “Happy Ending.”

For this edition of The Run Off, Vocal Point came out on top with 49 percent of the votes as of midnight the morning of Wednesday, February 23, ET. Congratulations to Vocal Point and thank you to those who voted!
