Ben Folds' Seven-City, 14,000-Member A Capella Choir

Posted By on Thu, Jul 7, 2011 at 11:00 AM

When Ben Folds toured the Midwest earlier this year, he recorded several of his audiences singing parts of the first track on his new album. All the bits and pieces were edited together to make this video, an a capella performance by 14,000 people. It's a pretty impressive musical feat — and I'm not just saying that because I happened to be in the St. Louis audience.

Can't wait to see what Ben has up his sleeve when he hits the Rialto on July 16.
