Biography


Pentatonix is best known for winning the third season of "The Sing-Off" in 2011. The a capella group was first formed by high school friends Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying. They started gaining attention on YouTube with their version of Beyonce Knowles and Lady GaGa's "Telephone". The trio named themselves Pentatonix after being joined by two new members Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola. The five-piece then auditioned for the NBC singing competition and signed a recording contract with Sony Music after being crowned the winner.

The group's debut EP "PTX, Volume 1" was released in 2012. It's followed by "PTXmas" that arrived in the same year. Their third release, "PTX, Vol. II", debuted at number 1 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart and number 10 on Billboard 200 in 2013. In May 2014, Pentatonix signed with RCA Records, a "flagship" label of Sony Music Entertainment. The year also saw them releasing "PTX, Vol. III" and their two first full-length studio albums, including "That's Christmas to Me" that's so far peaked at No. 2 on Billboard 200. It also becomes the second album released in 2014 to have gone platinum.
