A Cappella at the Grammys

Huge congratulations to Pentatonix for winning the first ever Grammy in the new category of "Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella" for their arrangement of Daft Punk on their CD release PTX, Vol 2. They also got to present a Grammy along with Barry Gibb who knows a bit about vocal harmony himself. The other a cappella winner of the night was Craig Hella Johnson with his choir Conspirare who won the Best Choral Performance category. Very pleased to see Tim Hauser mentioned in the Those We Lost section but VERY disappointing there was no mention of Ward Swingle, especially considering he won five Grammys including Best New Artist. There were sadly many great names on that list this year but Ward certainly deserved to be one of them.
