If you don’t remember just how successful and influential a cappella group Take 6 is, well, that’s okay. They’re ready to serve a reminder with their new release Believe. The album comes during a time when a cappella is experiencing renewed mainstream interest from viral social media videos to the success of a cappella quintet Pentatonix to hit movies like Pitch Perfect. All of which builds on the success of Take 6 who have enjoyed a nearly 30-year career with 10 Grammy Awards, critically acclaimed performances and collaborations with Ray Charles, Quincy Jones and Queen Latifah.
“We are architects for some of contemporary a cappella and may be influential,” said group member Claude McKnight. “But I understand if we are not mentioned quite as we or others think we should be mentioned. I’ve always tried to look at the larger picture. I understand times and people’s tastes change. Things come in and out of focus so people move on to what is more contemporary. I love what I see and hear because it brings light back to us as well. And we are still really good at what we do.”
