Chart-topping a capella group Straight No Chaser returns to Westminster College’s Orr Auditorium with their “Back in the High Life” tour at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 26, and will bring audiences to their feet with their R&B, smooth jams, pop favorites and stadium anthems—and witty banter.
In 2007, co-founder Randy Stine uncovered a college-era clip of he and nine of his old buddies singing “The 12 Days of Christmas” back in 1998. On a whim, he uploaded it to YouTube, where Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman watched the video. Clown away by the talent and chemistry of this a capella anomaly, he hunted the boys down to sign them.
Since then, the group has clocked in two RIAA-certified Gold records, $1.6 million in album sales, $1 million in ticket sales worldwide, 100 million-plus YouTube views, 100 million streams, dozens of major television performances and three PBS specials. They have collaborated with artists such as Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Kristen Bell, and the group paved the way for pop culture phenoms like “The Sing-Off” and Pentatonix.
Sponsored by Huntington, a Celebrity Series STAR sponsor, the show is appropriate for all ages.
