Intertwining Melodies Are Poetic With This Cover Of Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam"

Sometimes in a cappella, to be inventive, you don't always need crazy syllables or an octavized bass. A well-delivered solo, or in this case a killer rap section, can speak volumes.

What makes this cover of "Ultralight Beam" by the Intertwining Melodies outside of just the soul hitting rap section (later in the video) is that it all feels like Sunday Gospel. Granted, this isn't necessarily a spiritual song, but it's easy to be received that way. From the multiple hand-offs of the solo where each delivers a passionate performance to the Sunday choir persona the group embodies by the end, this whole performance is simply moving.
