"Up Top" women's a cappella group auditions in Los Angeles

For the last several years, Willamette has benefited from having two excellent a cappella groups on campus, both of which have performed at Reunion Weekend and in many other venues. One of them -- Up Top, an all-female group -- recently traveled to Los Angeles to audition for the reality television show, "The Sing Off."

Along the way, they made a video of the experience.

Check YouTube.com for more videos, both of Up Top and their male counterpart, Headband.
