Pentatonix is an a cappella, pop, R&B and soul music group that thrives every Holiday season in advance of Christmas. The group originally formed in 2011 in Arlington, Texas currently has five members, all of which are more than ready to show off their skills come the late months of each calendar year.
Now comes the news that the group is releasing their fourth Holiday album in the upcoming weeks, and embarking on the “Christmas Is Here! Tour.” Diversity is the most important ingredient when baking a truly American dish, and the group is a trend setter in some senses. Here are a few more specifics of the upcoming run, as well as some things that fans interested in purchasing Pentatonix Tickets should know.
This is what the group announced to their fan base in the previous days via their Twitter page: BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! With the holiday season just around the corner, we‘re SO EXCITED to share with you that we’re heading out on a HOLIDAY TOUR this WINTER! On top of that, we can officially announce that we have a BRAND NEW ALBUM with some of our favorite Christmas covers out this October!

Kirstin Maldonado, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee are the members of Pentatonix, which was formed in The Lone Star State just seven years ago. Their versatile array of skills garnered the attention of major record labels, and they were signed to Sony Music after they won the third season of The Sing-Off, an NBC show that aimed to put the network into the action in a very popular genre of modern television.
The contract was short-lived, and Pentatonix decided to go the route of YouTube, signing on with Madison Gate Records and treading into the great abyss that is making music with hopeful intentions. Things worked out very well, and they garnered an array of Internet-based awards in the following years. These include the YouTube Music Awards Artists of the Year in 2015, the Best YouTube Musician according to the Shorty Awards in the same year, and the Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in 2015.
Indeed, the group that is going to embark on a gigantic run soon has an amazing array of distinctions and awards, as well as the praise from millions of fans that they have garnered over the years.
