Biography:
The group of Filipino-American  who were featured in NBC’s hit musical competition, “The Sing-Off”, has much to sing about. Making the semi-finals, finishing the first “Sing-Off” National tour, sharing the stage with Linkin Park, Black Eyed Peas and Pentatonix, then being part of the movie Pitch Perfect 2 is only the kick-off to their amazing journey!  They consist of six members: Vocalists VJ Rosales, Joe Caigoy, Trace Gaynor, and Barry Fortgang, Vocal Bass Jules Cruz, and Beat boxer Niko Del Rey.  

Through a strong kinship to their Filipino culture they have found their niche in the musical community.  Though their passion for great music is on par,  their combined talents come from a wide variety of backgrounds in the performing arts industry, including pop, a cappella, jazz, opera, theater, classical, etc.  Together they honor their Filipino heritage through incredibly nuanced musical performances that are both moving and fun to experience.

Ultimately the group aspires to work with the greatest in the music industry for the greatest audience in the world: you.  To this end, they invite you to join them on this amazing journey they’ve embarked on as they work joyfully and tirelessly at their art.
