Chicago Youth Group Sings 'The Sound Of Silence'

The talented vocal ensemble of Musicality put their own spin on the classic song ‘The Sound Of Silence.’


Simon & Garfunkel originally released this iconic tune in 1964. Since that time, many artists have lent their voices to the song. One of the most well known covers comes from the rock band, Disturbed, in 2015. It went on to reach number one on the Billboard Hard Rock Digital Songs.

“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”

Today, the talented teens of Musicality are showcasing their own cover of this famous song. Musicality is a vocal ensemble from Chicago.

They describe their origins on their website. “In 2008, High School music teacher Michael Gibson saw so much musical potential and passion in his students that he decided to start an after-school group dedicated to singing. That group became Musicality, a safe haven where students could express themselves through music. Musicality even became a second family for many of the members.”

After a successful run on America’s Got Talent and multiple performance awards, the vocal group is more popular than ever. And now, they’re using their platform to help the community too.

This music video was made in partnership with KultureCity, which is an organization ‘rethinking accessibility to create awareness, acceptance, and inclusion for people with ""invisible"" disabilities such as autism, P.T.S.D, and many other sensory issues.’ What an incredible way to use their vocal talent.
