Here Are Your Collegiate Nominees For The 2020 A Cappella Video Awards



Just when you thought a cappella couldn't get any better, more hard-hitting, or just plain cooler, it does!

Each year, the sound that defines a cappella seems to develop even more, showcasing an endless stream of creativity and breaking down barriers for what's even vocally possible. With these advancements, groups have followed suit with our video dependent society by releasing music videos that are just as professional and amazing as the music recorded in the studio.

For a select few, those videos that really make a profound statement, the Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA) chooses to recognize their efforts and hard work by honoring them in the annual A Cappella Video Awards.
These awards honor everything from the best videos in a specific genre all the way to production.

This year's talent pool is quite impressive as groups continue to tackle the type of music that does more than just entertain, it evokes a true soul-stirring response that leaves you breathless and emotional!
