lots of music lovers on the forum so i though i'd pass this on. my friend directs the Angel City Chorale in LA and they are going to be on America's Got Talent tonight. NBC. 8pm.

don't know what song they are doing but here is a vid of them performing an amazing arrangement of Toto's "Africa." it's gotten over 10M views on youtube.

Angel City Chorale - Africa

not much of a live tv watcher but i'm tuning in tonight. don't really know how this show works but i do know what ever is on tonight was actually recorded months ago. apparently they make you sign all sorts of non-disclosure agreements so my friend has not been able to tell us much in advance.

gawd, I hate that song, but that was a wonderful arrangement. Loved the percussive beginning. If you post a link to their performance on the show, I'll happily watch, but I won't be seeing the broadcast.

Not really the right kind of "talent" to be a winner.

First, I've always like the song.

And certainly a very nice arrangement, though I'd don't care much for the lead vocalist (or whatever he'd be called.

I wish I'd started the video and not seen any of it. I wonder if I'd have guessed they were foley-esc artists.

I also have a slight weakness for chorale.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I wonder if they shouldn't have saved this song for later in the season, and therefore been able to do the full version of the song as opposed to this abridged version. Quite a good choir, I hope they go far.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the instrumental accompaniment for this song, I think the acapella versions work better. It's amazing what the voice can do.
