MG: I thought Britney the cheerleader was hilarious. MG: The only real challenge was trying to interact with everyone in Southern Baptist, masculine Texas. I have missed out on opportunities but I have learned to take advantage of everything I can do, if it is a good situation.

I think we are all very active on there, especially me. I don't think it is something that will die down. It is a really easy way to be creative because all you need is your voice. PDFs for back issues are downloadable from our online archives.
It is fun and something the whole family can enjoy.
Even people who don't know who we are can get into Michael Jackson. I think traditional a cappella has longevity because of movies like Pitch Perfect and television shows like The Sing Off.
That is something we added that we haven't done before for live audiences. WCT: Where do you see a cappella music going in the future? We obviously fit under that umbrella term because we just do music with our voices but I feel like we as a band are moving farther and farther away from traditional a cappella.
Pentatonix rose to the top of the a cappella world after winning the television competition show The Sing-Off on NBC. MG: What is cool is that they are coming to all of these shows, too.

We were big Glee fans when it was on television in high school. Scott, Kirstie, and I heard about this radio competition and it was for an a cappella group so we just formed a little trio. We sent the video in and didn't wind up winning but it was the start of Pentatonix. WCT: I read you were an extra on an episode of Glee.

Grassi is one of the openly gay members of the group, and Windy City caught up with him on the road by phone.
