It's easy to sometimes forget the focus on backing instrumentation in a cappella.
We're talking the foundation that the backing group creates as a killer soloist rifts over throughout a performance. And often, a genre that has no trouble with eliciting an emotional from the backing sound is country music.
In this cover of Rascal Flatt's "Riot" by The Gentlemen of the College from The College of William and Mary, both the lead and backing singers are on equal footing as they deliver a star-studded performance that's tear-inducing. It's tracks like this that leave you in awe of not only the power of the human voice but also its limitless ability to do anything.
