/EINPresswire.com/ Washington, DC, March 26, 2013 – Keyvibe, a professional, pop-music-focused, co-ed a capella group based out of Washington DC, announced that it will be performing and competing in “Aca-Idol,” on March 1st, 2013. Aca-idol is a competition where adult a capella groups are judged and coached, and is hosted during the “Sing-Strong”, nationwide a capella conference held March 1st-3rd 2013 in Reston, VA.
A-CAPELLA-Idol, “Aca-Idol”, is an event designed to entertain, raise money through charity and inspire groups to achieve their best in terms of artistry and creativity. This year’s Aca-Idol will host
groups from all over the country. During this event, groups perform for 10 minutes and are judged by a panel of qualified judges who have the requisite experience in a capella music. Each judge rates performers in terms of musicality, originality, and overall impact. One group will be chosen per judge as the winner of the event, and audience members will be offered the opportunity to vote for a winner. This year, Keyvibe will be performing for the first time, and will be singing songs by Mariah Carey/Boy II Men and Katy Perry with a special choreographed performance.
Keyvibe’s founder, Kimberly Clark, stated “I am excited and proud for Keyvibe to be performing this year at Aca-Idol. Since we were founded a year ago, we have made great strides towards growing and learning as a group, improving our skills and performance abilities and steadily building our repertoire. It has been a long-standing dream of mine to create a unique, talented, professional a capella group where we can all share our love of music and the genre with each other and with others. This weekend, I am confident that we will receive useful feedback from the judges while showcasing our talent while learning some new skills and ideas during the Sing-Strong conference.
“Aca-Idol” is the first event of a weekend-long conference, called “Sing-Strong,” that runs from Friday-Sunday and is set in Reston, VA. A capella members and aficionados travel from all over the country to attend this conference, which has been running since 2009 and sold out every year.
