This Saturday, Feb. 29, the College of Charleston all girls acapella group, the AcaBelles will be opening up for three local bands at Music Farm’s Leap Day Show after winning CofC’s Women in Music and Entertainment Instagram competition.
The AcaBelles participated in a competition through WME’s Instagram account this past month. In order to win, the group had to receive the most likes on an Instagram video they sent in.
The AcaBelles sent in a video of their adaptation of the song “Motivation” by Normani featuring freshman soloist, Shania Franklin. The video racked up about 2,000 likes and over 7,000 views.
The group will be singing “Motivation” again at their upcoming Music Farm performance along with some other songs from their concert this past fall and some new arrangements they’ve been working on.
“Our hardworking group of women has been putting in so much time and we are so excited and grateful for the opportunity to reach so many people. It’s going to be an unforgettable experience for all of us,” junior arts management major and president of the AcaBelles, Sabrina Imbrogno said.
The group will be singing some old favorites including “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 and “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child as well as new pop hits like “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles, “Hymn for the Weekend” by Coldplay and “Electric Love” by BORNS.
If you are unable to attend the Leap Day Show at Music Farm, you still have another opportunity to see this lovely group of ladies do their thing. The AcaBelles will be hosting their five year anniversary concert on April 19 in the CofC Recital Hall. More details to come.
