A cappella Grammy win

Congratulations to Eric Whitacre and his Grammy win last night for Light and Gold in the Best Choral Performance category. A cappella was featured in probably the best part of the show with Jennifer Hudson singing a moving a cappella intro to "I Will Always Love You" in a tribute to Whitney Houston. It was stunning! I'd like to see some of the big pop divas singing a cappella and not hide behind the sweetening that they all seem to employ. And how about just standing there and delivering a song rather than all this jumping all over the place. At one point last night a singer was wriggling around on the floor while singing. Jeez!
