For even the most seasoned professional performers, tribute concerts are some of the most difficult performances. Often, an artist or group is asked to perform a much-loved song by a beloved and respected artist and they have to perform the song in front of a live audience. It’s hard to predict how the audience will react and whether or not they will like the performance. This tribute performance of “Too Much Heaven” is by Pentatonix, and the crowd absolutely loved it!
Pentatonix was performing at a live television special called “Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees”. As if performing the famous songs of the Bee Gees in front of a live audience and alongside many other accomplished artists wasn’t daunting enough, Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees was right there in the audience. Penatonix are well-respected artists themselves, but there’s something about singing a song like this in front of the performer who made it famous. Even experienced artists can be intimidated by this type of situation and the members of Pentatonix admitted that they were nervous prior to their time on the stage. However, as you can see from this video, it’s impossible to tell that they were at all intimidated. Like always, they gave an amazing performance and were consummate professionals.
Though they have original music as well, Pentatonix has forged a career out of singing covers. They have covered favorites like Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and have even performed Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” right alongside the powerhouse country singer. The acapella group has a unique talent for staying true to songs in a way that fans will love while bringing their own unique flair and brilliant voice to the mix.
Please like and share the wonderful performance!
