I’m dreaming of a
white Pentatonix Christmas.
Pentatonix Gets Fans Into The Halloween Spirit!
‘Tis the season of twinkling lights, pine trees, extreme shopping,
and Christmas albums by our favorite artists! This year the list of
artists that are releasing sounds of the season include super group
Pentatonix, who are paving a way in the mainstream for a cappella
music. The group won the third season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”
and released an EP, PTX Vol. 1, earlier this year.
Pentatonix Goes Gangnam!
Penatonix will release their debut Christmas album called PTXmas on
Tuesday, November 13, and RyanSeacrest.com has an exclusive preview
track off of the album that will feature six classic Christmas tunes.

On High” and keep reading for some of the groups’ favorite
Brilliant beatboxer Kevin
Olusola says, “My favorite Christmas memory was when I went
on a cruise to the Caribbean with my family during my senior year
of high school. It was so amazing to be at sea with family enjoying
warm weather, and cruises are just ridiculously fun in general!”
The soulful singer with runs like Beyoncé Scott Hoying says,
“My favorite Christmas memory was waking up to an Nintendo 64
under the tree; I was the nerdiest of video game nerds as a child
and the N64 was the biggest thing in video games at the time. I honestly
didn’t think I’d get one because they were sold out everywhere,
but Santa was on top of his game that year! I screamed and ran around
the house like a maniac!”
The amazingly gifted Mitch Grassi says, “One of my favorite
Christmas memories is playing the Billy Gilman Christmas CD on repeat!
This was a long time ago when he was still really young. My family
would play it every day in the car, in the house, etc., from late
October until Christmas.”
Kirstie Maldonado, the
beautiful and talented girl in this super group, says, “When
I was little my mom and I lived in an apartment and there was one
year when we wanted to buy a fresh tree for Christmas and put it up
together. It was a happy moment because it was a struggle but my Mom
and I have always prided ourselves in being able to be happy and do
things with just us. My mom’s always tried to make every Christmas
special for me. Also we always made a ‘Happy Birthday Jesus’
The baddest bass around Avi Kaplan says, “My Favorite Christmas
memory is sitting by the fire, listening to the Blind Boys of Alabama
Christmas cd with my whole family just talking and laughing. There’s
nothing better than being with your family during the holidays.
Tickets are now available for Pentatonix’s second tour in North
America which will begin on January 24, 2013, in Los Angeles and the
