“DCappella’s Live Concert Debut: Disney Music Group’s new a cappella singing group, DCappella, made its live concert debut during the pre-show. The seven-member strong troupe’s 20-minute set included renditions of new Disney favorites like Moana’s “How Far I’ll Go” and Coco’s “The World Es Mi Familia,” as well as a mash-up of tunes from The Little Mermaid. The act closed out the performance with a fun choice: Fall Out Boy’s rockin’ “Immortals,” from Big Hero 6, which was bolstered by a looper machine stacking their vocals.”
“A cappella group DCappella performed a slick, choreographed harmonic set of Disney tunes, sometimes sounding various instruments, instead of singing actual lyrics. They genially finished their set performing “Immortals” from Big Hero 6 with clever amplification of a synthesizer unit that multiplied their individual sounds.”
“…an opening act featuring the enthusiastic Disney-centric vocal group, DCappella.”
