Pentatonix traces Michael Jackson's musical evolution in six glorious a cappella minutes

By Brian Mansfield June 22, 2015 4


In the past, Pentatonix has posted videos outlining the history of Beyoncé and music itself with their a cappella videos. Now, the five-member group, which goes on tour with Kelly Clarkson starting next month, turns its attention to the King of Pop.

Pentatonix runs through more than a dozen Michael Jackson songs in its new clip, from early Jackson 5 hits like I Want You Back and ABC all the way to latter-day favorites like You Are Not Alone and Heal the World. Of course, there are plenty of songs from Jackson’s Thriller heyday. And we especially love the way Avi Kaplan sings the bass lines on Rock With You and Billie Jean.
