Peter Hollens & Nick Pitera
Love this song!!!
I am totally obsessed with wicked and was so excited the first time I heard this medley. I sang along with the whole thing!! Five stars for sure! Amazingly done and great singing by both nick and peter.
Peter always amazes me with his talent, but this medley is definitely one of his best! From his powerful ending of "Defying Gravity," to his softer duet in "Changed for Good," to the silly "Popular," his voice & talent never wavers, and his passion for music never ceases. Whether you're a long time fan of the #hollensfamily or are just discovering Peter and his amazing talent, this song is a must buy!! =D
About Peter Hollens
Singer, songwriter, producer, and all-round entrepreneur Peter Hollens is a champion of a cappella singing dating back to his days at the University of Oregon, where he founded the college a cappella group On the Rocks in 1999 with Leo da Silva. Hailing from Ashland, Oregon, Hollens earned a degree in vocal performance from the University of Oregon, where he became active on the college a cappella circuit, producing, recording, and judging competitions. He started his own YouTube channel in 2011, posting music videos with multi-tracked a cappella vocals, often with collaborators Nick Pitera, Lindsey Stirling, Mike Tompkins, Sam Tsui, Tyler Ward, George Watsky, Alex G, and Hollens' wife, Evynne Hollens. His subscriber list grew rapidly, reaching some 750,000 by the summer of 2014. Hollens worked from his home studio in Eugene, Oregon, producing recordings for On the Rocks, Divisi, Cornell's Chordials, the Duke's Men of Yale, the Whiffenpoofs, Committed, the Backbeats, and the Swingle Singers, among others. He released two debut albums under his own name, Covers, Vol. 1 and Covers, Vol. 2, in 2012, after which he signed a recording deal with Sony Music Masterworks in 2014, which released the self-titled Peter Hollens album in the fall of that same year. For his next project, Hollens shifted his focus to the world of Middle Earth with Misty Mountains: Songs Inspired by the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Released in early 2016, the album featured a cappella arrangements of songs by Enya, Neil Finn, composer Howard Shore, and other music related to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings film franchise. Capping off another big year, Hollens returned several months later with A Hollens Family Christmas, his first holiday-themed LP. ~ Steve Leggett
