This past Saturday Elon University’s all female a cappella group Sweet Signatures participated in the South East quarterfinal competition of the International Championships of A Cappella. They worked the whole month of January, learning new songs for the competition and perfecting their performances. Though they didn’t place, it was still an honor for them to even compete. Only nine groups out of each region were chosen to compete and, to put that into perspective, Elon has five groups here. Sweet Signatures is the only group on campus that competes and they pride themselves in that fact.
Having only been around since 2001, Sweet Signatures has already made a name for themselves with their CDs and their performances. Not only people from the university but also people from the surrounding community come out to see them perform. These girls are all people who just like to sing on their own free time – none of them are music majors. While being in many other organizations on campus, this is the one outlet these girls have for singing and performing.
