A capella Crush – Orange Appeal After Hours Spring 2010. Good stuff! 🙂
This a capella group has also sang an arrangement of Stand By Me / Beautiful Girls
As have this choir on BBC tv plus a few other vocal groups
Hm, I always thought that David came up with the original idea of sampling Sean Kingston’s song when he sang Stand By Me on American Idol. It seemed that way with the ruckus that erupted about Jeff’s meddling hand in insisting that Beautiful Girls be sampled during David’s performance. But from the video evidence it’s apparent that Stand By Me / Beautiful Girls had been performed by other musical groups well before David’s turn. So I wonder what the fuss was all about?
Music to soothe your soul – according to 16 yr old Mithra Susan Simon. I must say I wholeheartedly agree with Mithra’s first choice.
