Pentatonix Live A Cappella Performance Of 'The Sound Of Silence'

A cappella singing sensations Pentatonix perform a live rendition of ‘The Sound Of Silence’ on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. This hauntingly beautiful performance showcases the incredible range and talent from these five voices.


“Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence”

Pentatonix formed in 2011, but they shot to worldwide fame after winning the third season of the television show ‘The Sing Off.’ Now, they are households names with viral performances such as ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’

Now, Pentatonix is back with a stunning performance of the iconic song, ‘The Sound Of Silence.’ Simon & Garfunkel originally recorded this song in 1964. Since that time, many artists have lent their voices to the tune. One of the most well-known covers comes from the rock band, Disturbed, in 2015. But all of these pale in comparison to this a cappella rendition from these five voices.

When you perform a song a cappella, every single sound that you hear comes from the human voice. There are no instruments or background music. It can take hours of practice to perfect such a difficult arrangement and each note must be performed in a precise manner. But, Pentatonix makes it all seem so easy as they flawlessly belt out these famous lyrics.

I think that this cover is going to be remembered as one of their best. What do you think?
