Disney Channel's 'Teen Beach Movie' Songs Get A Cappella Treatment

Hollywood Reporter:

Disney Channel has recruited three musical acts to put an a cappella spin on several Teen Beach Movie songs. Inspired by fan-created renditions of the songs from the original TV movie, which aired earlier this summer, the cable network went to a cappella group Pentatonix, YouTube sensation Sam Tsui and singer-producer Peter Hollens to create new versions.

Pentatonix covered "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'," Tsui tackled "Meant to Be" and Hollens teamed with wife Evynne Hollens for a medley featuring "Like Me," "Meant to Be" and "Surf Crazy."

The new versions will debut on Disney Channel Sunday, Nov. 17, at 8 p.m. during an encore of the popular movie, with a promo launching Friday around 2:25 p.m. PT during an airing of Austin & Ally.

"We've all been huge fans of Disney since we were kids, so we are all so excited to be working with them," said Pentatonix lead vocalist Scott Hoying. Watch a promo clip here.

Well this will make my 11 year old daughter happy. She watched Teen Beach Movie seemingly endessly this summer and of course she loves a cappella.
