‘Sing It On’ Is Back For A Brand New Season!
After an exciting first season, Sing It On is back for a brand new second season chock full of all the drama and vocal inspiration viewers have come to expect. The eight-episode docu-series is the real life Pitch Perfect—it follows four collegiate a cappella teams as they vie for a spot in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) in New York City.
This year the stakes are even higher for the four teams featured on Sing It On, and for good reason: two teams hail from the same school, while two teams are top contenders from the same region! Viewers will meet the Hexachords and S#arp Attitude from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Faux Paz (University of Maryland) and Off The Beat (University of Pennsylvania).
UPenn alumnus John Legend serves as an executive producer of the show, and as a former member of UPenn’s Counterparts, which made it to the ICCA Finals in 1997, his passion for a cappella is evident: “The excitement surrounding collegiate a cappella is close to my heart as it was the start of my career as a recording artist, and I know first-hand the dedication and teamwork it takes to be successful,” he said. “Pop’s Sing It On strikes all the right chords by capturing the heat of competition, passionate musical performances and the enduring friendships found in the a cappella community.”
The teams will also face unique challenges along the way. For the sassy all-female group S#arp Attitude, that means finding a replacement beat boxer for the one they lost to their rivals the Hexachords, while reigning regional champions Faux Paz struggle to find female voices to flesh out their mixed group.
Regardless of the challenges each team faces, their music propels them forward and audiences will be wowed by their powerful performances and incredible talent. Make sure to catch the Season 2 premiere of Sing It On on Wednesday, July 27 at 9/8c on POP TV (Ch. 1185 (HD) & 185 (SD)), and set your DVR for new episodes every week on Wednesdays at 8/7c beginning August 3.
