Overview

High notes, high drama, and high jinks collide as elite collegiate a cappella groups compete to be the best in the nation

Journalist Mickey Rapkin follows a season in collegiate a cappella, covering the breathtaking displays of vocal talent, the groupies (yes, a cappella singers have groupies), the rock-star partying (and run-ins with the law), and all the bitter rivalries. Along the way are encounters with a cappella alums like John Legend and Diane Sawyer and fans from Prince to presidents.

Bringing a lively new twist to America’s fascination with talent showdowns, Pitch Perfect is sure to strike a chord with readers.
