Pentatonix traces ‘Evolution of Music’

Posted 4:04pm on Thursday, Apr. 18, 2013

Pentatonix, the Sing-Off winning a cappella group founded by Arlington Martin High grads Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado and Mitch Grassi, is getting a lot of attention for it latest YouTube clip -- which is at 2.5 million views on the official version, which has only been up since April 15.

In Evolution of Music, the quintet (also featuring Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola) starts in the 11th century with Salve Regina, then quickly time-travels through the centuries till it arrives at the 20th, with songs ranging from Cab Calloway to M.C. Hammer, and on into the 21st, where Outkast, Gnarls Barkley, Katy Perry and others get their due (I skipped a lot; Yahoo Music even does a breakdown of all the songs).

This week has been filled with bad news -- so if you need something to bring a smile to your face, here it is.
