The AcaBelles are Florida State University's premier all-female a cappella group established in 2000. The 'Belles have been the South Champions of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) both in 2009 and 2011. In our 2011/2012 season, we earned 2nd place and Best Choreography at SoJam, 2nd place and Outstanding Choreography at ICCA south quarterfinals, and 2nd place, Outstanding Choreography, Outstanding Soloist, and Outstanding arrangement at ICCA semifinals. Aside from competing, we also released our album Seamless, which earned 4 CARA nominations and a CARA award for Best Female Collegiate Arrangement.
Last year, we welcomed six new 'Belles into our a cappella family and began a new journey. We earned 2nd place and Outstanding Choreography at ICCA south quarterfinals at Clemson, traveled to Nashville for ICCA semifinals and Raleigh for SoJam, entertained our peers around campus and Tallahassee, performed from Jacksonville to Boca Raton on our Winter Tour, put on two amazing semester-end concerts, and most importantly, made unforgettable memories with each other.
During our 2013-2014 season, we've made waves at A Cappella Ed and SoJam A Cappella Festival. Our cover of "Royals" produced by The Vocal Company has over 7.5 million views and has been featured on Good Morning America, CNN, MSN, People, HLN, Elle, Seventeen, and more. With the incredible response to our video, we're working hard to continue on the path to success. This spring, we were able to record a full length album thanks to a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign. We'll be releasing the new album, Rebel, on August 15th, 2014 and cannot wait for you to hear it!
