Michael Buble and Naturally 7 in the NYC Subway

Yesterday, this video was posted to Michael Buble’s YouTube channel.  In it, Michael sings “Who’s Loving You” from his new album To Be Loved, backed by the a cappella fabulousness that is Naturally 7.  Naturally 7 has been a regular opening act for Michael on multiple tours.

Straight No Chaser Sneak Previews

Straight No Chaser‘s new album, Under the Influence, which includes several songs featuring famous guest artists, drops on May 7. As a lead up, apparently the group is releasing a series of sneak previews of these songs.

Here’s the entire track list, with links to the sneak previews that have already been released:

1. I Want You Back (featuring Sara Bareilles)
2. Rolling In The Deep
3. Against All Odds (featuring Phil Collins)
4. Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours) (feat. Stevie Wonder)
5. Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me (feat. Elton John)
6. Some Nights/We Are Young
7. I Won’t Give Up (featuring Jason Mraz)
8. This Is How A Heart Breaks (featuring Rob Thomas)
9. Kiss From A Rose (featuring Seal)
10. Jolene (featuring Dolly Parton)
11. Hallelujah

I, for one, am eagerly awaiting track 11.  Many believe the song “Hallelujah” is overdone in the a cappella community, but this one was arranged by Mark Kibble. So there you go.
