Episodes of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” are pre-recorded, which means that Vocal Point members are in Provo. This week, they invited friends, family and fans to watch “The Sing-Off” with them.
The Jordan Commons Megaplex in Sandy is usually not very busy on a Monday night. But this week, people lined up and drove for hours just to get there.
“So me and my dad drove all the way down from boise to come see vocal point um totally big fan…It says on my shirt, and they’re… They’re my homies now and i can’t let them down,” said 18-year-old Matthew Hart.
Vocal Point has over ten thousand fans on Facebook. They use this fan base to help advertise for concerts and shows. Using Facebook as a tool, this event filled up faster than any other concert.
Amber Catherall, a Senior at BYU said “We’ve been watching it on Hulu on my little computer this whole time and now to actually watch it on a big screen makes it feel so much more of a big deal.”
Fans got the chance to meet and talk with vocal point members, get autographs and even win prizes during the commercial breaks.
Tenor Keith Evans from Vocal Point said, “Our fans are awesome. Sometimes i’ll sit in rehearsal and look around and think that it’s just nine guys that go to college that happen to like to sing.But the amount of support we get from people that are really good friends and family and people that we’ve never met is really humbling.”
Fans even heard the talents of vocal point members in person and some gave it a try themselves. One 6-year-old boy will surprise you with his lip-smacking skills.
Singing in Vocal Point is like working a fulltime job, but without the paycheck. This event was free to fans but they generously donated to the Vocal Point Scholarship Fund
