Grammy Award-winning country group Lady Antebellum is searching for a group to sing with them at a December event, and Oklahoma City-based Christian group Acappella could be chosen to perform with the popular trio.
Acappella, which recently gave a free concert at Oklahoma Christian University, is participating in a contest that has them now in a tight race with a group from the University of Connecticut to win it all, reports The Oklahoman’s Religion Editor Carla Hinton.
The group with the most votes wins, and today is the final day people can cast their online vote. You can see Acappella’s audition video and vote by going to tinyurl.com/AcaLady or http://acappella.ladyantebellum.com/entry/748106. The group’s rendition of Lady A’s hit “Love Don’t Live Here” is terrific!
Members of Acappella are Zac George, Malcolm Himes, Anthony Lancaster, Wes McKinzie and Raymond Mobley. McKinzie, who is OC’s director of communications/marketing, said the group’s tech director Justin Elliott, does vocal percussion on the video. McKinzie also said he and Elliott and the other four men mentioned here are OC alumni or current students.
