Sil'hooettes acapella cover of Beyonce and Lady Gaga's 'Telephone' is almost better than the original. It's certainly more epic.
The all female singing troupe from the University of Virginia are famed on YouTube for their renditions of anything from classic rock to 90's rap, pop punk, alternative, country, reggae and, of course Beyonce and Gaga chart-toppers.
While the beginning is certainly killer, for the very best bit skip to 1 minute 40 seconds. These girls got pipes.
After watching that we need to start our own acapella group. So, what have we learnt about the craft from listening to these gals sing their hearts out?
1. We need singing lessons. If you're anything like us your singing voice is reminiscent of a disgruntled crow, then it's probably about time to cough up for some vocal training. Especially if you want to give these girls a run for their money.
2. We need more friends. We doubt we'd be able to rope in enough volunteers ready and willing to have their singing voice blast all over youtube without any backing music. Our mission for this week? Go to a karaoke night and source some more talent.
3. Stocking up on black clothes is a must. As Beyonce's rapper hubby once said: "All black everything. Black cards, black cars. All black everything." But instead of the cards we'll opt for jeans... And instead of cars we'll invest in some more black shirts.
After that we'll be more than ready to start our own group, right?
