Pentatonix is sending a message in their newest video for their cover of John Lennon's classic song Imagine.
In the video, members Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, Kristin Maldonado and Kevin Olusola take the song to the next level. Their beautiful vocals are accompanied by the members holding up signs of words that describe themselves personally and in a general sense.
Some of the phrases used were "LGBTQ", "Man", "Jewish", "American", "Black", "Christian", "Latina" and "Women". These words were intertwined as the band passed them along to one another. At the end of the video, each of the five members grabs a board and writes on it. Finally, they flip them over to reveal the word HUMAN.
Throughout social media, there had been mixed reviews about the video. However, everyone has their own perception of it, and Pentatonix made it their own.
Watch the moving video below:
I was simply moved by this video. This is only one of many ways to interpret a song and Pentatonix did that beautifully. Not only were their vocals on point, but they went above and beyond to send out their vision of what the song means to them. I will definitely have this on repeat in my car.
The cover will be one of many on Pentatonix's new album entitled PTX: Vol IV-Classics. The album will be available on April 7 in stores everywhere. The album will also include their Grammy-winning collaboration with Dolly Parton on her hit single "Jolene".
