Brigham Young University’s celebrated male a cappella group, BYU Vocal Point, is following up on their best-selling album of hymns and inspirational songs, Lead Thou Me On, with an all-new contemporary album. Released today, April 8, Spectrum showcases the group’s signature take on popular songs from yesterday and today.

In addition to showcasing a wide scope of musical styles, the latest Vocal Point album complements its unique talents by using a spectrum of colors and energies available with today’s digital-recording advancements.

“You will not only recognize the pure warmth of genuine a cappella, but Spectrum will introduce you to some great new sound colors that add sparkle and dynamic range to that recognizable Vocal Point groove,” said Vocal Point Director and Spectrum Producer McKay Crockett.
