Season 2 of the reality show *The Sing Off on NBC has brought high quality a cappella music * entertainment, offered a range of talent within the genre, and boosted the consumer use of recorded music via CD and iTunes. Not only has it provided entertainment, but given recognition to beginning and veteran singing groups and boosted the nation’s economy.

In a nation in which the arts and music are cut from middle and high schools in cost-savings initiatives, The Sing Off has brought music back into America’s living rooms and persuaded those that were not consistent music listeners to take up the hobby.

The best part of The Sing Off Season 2 was the inclusion of such a diverse array of talent in the competition – from the renown Yale Whiffenpoofs to UO’s On The Rocks, to a Gospel group, Southern Rock, a group of 40-year veterans, a high school group from Kettering, Ohio, and a group just started 6 months before show time. In a nation that still often fobs off high schoolers, Southerners, Blacks, Asians, Christians, and Senior Citizens, this was a Christmas Miracle. A DVD of the entire season would make a top notch gift.
