Afro-Blue Is Our Favorite Color On ‘The Sing-Off’

With the Real Basketball Housewives of Newlosatlantamiamijersey Shore and what not regularly on my television screen, I'm a little "reality" showed out right now, but I do love a good singing competition. No, I'm not talking about The X-Factor (I said good, not over-hyped), but SoulBounce favorite The Sing-Off, the a cappella group competition series that premiered last night on NBC. Viewers of the season three premiere were treated to the first batch of 16 groups, and the stand out performance for me was delivered by 10-person co-ed troupe Afro-Blue. Much like last year, when I fell head-over-heels in love with eventual winners Committed the first time I heard them sing, I'm all over Afro-Blue. Originating from Washington, DC, the vocal jazz ensemble is comprised of Howard University students and their sound is like a soulful Manhattan Transfer with way more sugar and spice. They performed an exciting rendition of Corinne Bailey Rae's "Put Your Records On" to rave reviews from the celebrity judging panel who sailed them through to the next round. After watching this clip of them and their unique take on this song, you'll see why and will probably get sucked in by their sound as well. They'll be back on The Sing-Off in two weeks, so be sure to tune in for more of their vocal magic.
