The After School Specials Selected As Winners of 'It's On Us' A Cappella Contest

Early in 2016, the White House sponsored campaign 'It's On Us' launched a national a cappella contest to bring attention to the ever growing concern of sexual assault on college campuses around the country.

The campaign found a major supporter in Lady Gaga, who was reluctant to lend her Grammy-nominated song "Til It Happens To You" to the campaign. The contest encouraged all college or university groups to submit their own renditions of the Lady Gaga hit, where a panel of celebrity judges and musicians would crown the ultimate champion. The After School Specials, comprised of students from the Claremont Colleges in California were selected as the winners.
