Parodies and Covers

Parodies are extremely popular. Venetian Princess has recorded over a dozen parodies of pop singers’ work, complete with signature costumes. Others have done this as well.

Other growing vocal genres today include the choir and acapella group, both showcased in reality shows. One of the best covers of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance is done by the male acapella group On the Rocks at the University of Oregon – go Ducks! Listen to them at the link below and follow them on Facebook and Twitter. The Sing Off television reality competition show has given acapella music a boost around the world.

High school, colleges, and community choirs have risen, thanks to television contests. Following the trend in Europe, Columbus OH has its own Complaints Choir that sings its complaints to the city at special performances.  But the big news is that CINCINNATI is holding the World Choir Games for 2012, from July 4 – 14. You may even hear some Hip Hop.

Singing together to bring nations together”
