From Brigham Young University, Vocal Point captures faithful audiences throughout the world with their stunning, high-energy performances and their elaborate and fun music videos. With a wide range of vocal possibilities—and seeming impossibilities—these crowd-pleasers have it all: rock, pop, country, jazz, and R&B that makes their family-friendly concerts a showstopper. This nine-man group takes the songs you are familiar with, retools them and delivers a new rendition, complete with all the complex instrumentation done entirely with their mouths.

As a result of their success, the group has signed a recording contract with Universal Music Group, the largest music distributors in the world, as part of their label Decca Gold and also a contract with IMG Artists, the largest booking agency in the world.
