18 Wheelers Hit National Album 6th Time In 10 Years
The voices of 18 Rhode Island students are featured on a national a cappella compilation album for the sixth time in ten years.
The 18 Wheelers, a performance a cappella group at The Wheeler School in Providence, RI, are among the only area singers with a track selected from a national pool of submissions to this year’s Best of High School A Cappella compilation album. The Wheeler group performs “Dancing On My Own” covering the Swedish artist, Robyn.
The 18 Wheelers are all high school students selected by audition who perform across the state for various nonprofit organizations, schools, and community groups. In the past, the group has appeared on WGBH’s “Sing That Thing” television competition, appeared in a flash mob video at the Providence Place Mall, and were the only high school group on a compilation album produced by the Contemporary A Cappella Society in 2010. In 2011, they were asked to audition for “America’s Got Talent.” See the full list of singers and hear the track when you Read More.
The latest compilation album is sponsored by Varsity Vocals, a national organization dedicated to a cappella performance and competition events, and will drop on iTunes this January. “These aren’t just great a cappella compilation albums; they are great albums, period — and ones you’re going to return to time and again,” says Varsity Vocals on its website.
The 2019 International Competition for High School A Cappella begins mid-January in the U.S. and U.K. and runs through April.
