Acapella group Pentatonix released a new music video for their cover of John Lennon's Imagine in their signature style and it’s a soulful rendition of Lennon's classic song.


Pentatonix's cover was uploaded to their YouTube channel on March 10, 2017, and the video received nearly 400,000 views within a day.

Billboard had already announced that the cover would be included in their album PTX Vol. IV-Classics.

In the video, each member of the group is holding a sign with a word that describes them personally and then they flip it over to show a word that can be applied to them generally.

Throughout the video, the members of the group hold up signs with words like ‘man,’ ‘woman,’ ‘Black,’ ‘Latina,’ ‘LGBTQ+,’ ‘Christian,’ ‘Jewish,’ and ‘American.’


At the end of the video, each member takes a board and writes a letter on it and they flip the boards over in unison, spelling the word ‘HUMAN.’

The performance by the group, the song, and its message are equally powerful. Taking a cue from the song, the American acapella group's video encouraged equality and inclusivity among people in the world.

Pentatonix's album, PTX Vol. IV-Classics, released on April 7, 2017, also included their Grammy-winning collaboration with Dolly Parton on Jolene. The album was the group's fifth extended play album.


The acapella's group's cover of Imagine, reached number one on the Trending 140 Billboard Chart and the video had also made it to number 21 on the trending list of YouTube.

The video by Pentatonix served a wonderful example to people about working to come together despite all the differences, be it religion, gender, race and so on, because everyone was, after all, human.

The group from Arlington, Texas, consists of vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kristin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Matt Sallee, who replaced Avi Kaplan in 2017.

Also abbreviated as PTX, their debut album was EP PTX, Volume 1 released in 2012. They are recipients of three Grammy Awards, winning them in 2015, 2016, and 2017 for Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella, and Best Country Duo/Group Performance respectively.
