Briarcrest Christian High School in Memphis was chosen as the High School winner of Macy’s All-School A Cappella Challenge, taking home $25,000 for their a cappella performance of “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5. The check presentation and ceremony took place on Monday, November 16 at the school.
From Sept. 8 – Oct. 9, students, faculty and staff of schools across the country submitted a cappella performance videos to be considered for the competition. Three $25,000 prizes will be awarded in total – one for elementary through middle school level, one for high school level and one for college level.
The A Cappella Challenge was part of Macy’s back-to-school initiatives this year. Pentatonix, the platinum-selling and Grammy Award-winning a cappella group, served as ambassadors for the program and judges for part of the evaluation process.
