Vocal Rush is an a cappella group competing in the fourth season of The Sing-Off.


For these high-schoolers with big dreams of making it in the world of music, getting on the show is like living in a fairy tale. The group formed in 2011 at the Oakland School for the Arts and quickly broke out as a group to keep an eye on. They won the international championship for high school a cappella two years in a row. They are a tightly knit group who are like brothers and sisters. They are the youngest group in the competition, but you would never know it. They want to represent Oakland in a positive way through music and the arts.
