“The best musical instrument of all is the human voice — and if you’ve seen Rockapella, you know that’s the truth.” – USA Today

Rockapella is one of the world’s most sophisticated and lasting pop vocal groups. What began as an enthusiastic a cappella quartet at Brown University has evolved into a worldwide phenomenon: a high–energy quintet with a full–band sound that is a meld of rock and a cappella. Best known for its theme song “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?,” Rockapella captivates audiences with its dynamic stage presence, dance moves, comic interludes and impeccable timing. Their latest show, Motown & More includes many audience favorites and pays tribute to the music of Motown with unique versions of hit songs from The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, and more. With multiple award–winning CDs, Rockapella has acquired millions of fans around the globe, making it a cappella’s finest touring group today. Click here to download their latest promotional video.
