The five member a cappella group Pentatonix, posted their version of “Little Drummer Boy” to You Tube on November 25. The video is being picked up and shared by publications all over the Internet and has become a viral sensation with more than 7 million views in a week’s time.
It’s hard to believe an old Christmas classic can be made into something that garners so much attention, but after you hear it, you discover why!
According to the group’s Facebook page:
Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, and Kirstie Maldonado formed a trio during high school together in Arlington, Texas. They added the final two members, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, the day before their audition on Season 3 of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, and PTX was born. Pentatonix has that special a cappella swag, something that most singing groups tend to lack.
You can also download the group’s Christmas album on iTunes.
