Octopodes a cappella group to compete on ‘America Sings’

The Octopodes, an undergraduate co-ed contemporary pop/rock a cappella group based at the Homewood campus, will be featured on GMC TV’s America Sings competition at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 27.

By showing submitted videos, the program is featuring more than 100 singing groups from across North America. The groups are competing to win $10,000, with the audience casting votes online after each episode airs to decide that night’s winner. The singing groups with the most votes will be featured on the season finale.

GMC is channel 338 through DIRECTV, and channel 224 through Verizon FiOS TV; the network is not available through Comcast. Each episode also is available for online viewing at gmctv.tv/sing/vote, the same website where votes are cast.
