Forget about the old-fashioned A Cappella group, because this style of music is making a modern comeback. From movies like Pitch Perfect to its growth on college campuses, A Capella is becoming mainstream. Now, for the first time ever, it is headed to Broadway. One of the driving forces behind Pitch Perfect, Deke Sharon, joined our RightThisMinute hosts via Skype to discuss his latest project. He has spent his adult life trying to make A Capella music popular again. And, it seems to be working. Deke's upcoming show In Transit will be the first A Capella musical to hit Broadway. Tickets are already available, and the show opens this December.
