This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Emmanuel’s a cappella group, Acapocalypse, entertained a large crowd in the auditorium on the evening of Friday, December 2, with their fall showcase performance.

Accompanied by Berklee College of Music’s Upper Structure and Northeastern University’s Treble on Huntington, the a cappella groups performed renditions of many classic and popular songs, including covers of songs by Sia and Adele.

“I really loved ‘Cheap Thrills,'” said Emily O’Brien ’18.  “I thought Kiley’s vocals were amazing.”

Kiley Owen ’18, along with a few other members of Acapocalypse, sang lead during their performance.

Tucker Still ’19, an additional Acapocalypse member, also led one of the group’s songs, and earned praise from the audience.

“‘Dirty Work’ by Tucker was absolutely phenomenal,” Jonathan Maulucci ’19 said after the showcase. “I’m a long-term fan of Acapocalypse and that has been my favorite performance.”

Acapocalypse teamed up with Emmanuel’s H.U.E.L.L.A.S. to organize the showcase as a charity event to benefit Sociedad Latina, a youth development organization based out of Mission Hill.

The event raised $511.00 for Sociedad Latina.

Overall, students and family members in the crowd were a captive audience, cheering throughout songs and giving performers a standing ovation to end the night.
