The AcaBelles are Florida State University’s award-winning all-female a cappella group. We are made up of 17 women who come from diverse backgrounds, but are bound together by a love of making music together.

We've been so surprised and honored by the success of our video, “Royals”, produced by The Vocal Company for Support A Cappella and featured on Good Morning America, CNN, MSN, People, HLN, Elle, Seventeen, and more. 

We feel incredibly lucky to know that so many people are watching, listening, and enjoying so much. And it's so inspiring to know that people are responding by making their own music -- young women getting more involved in music because of us!

All of this inspires us to do more. And with your help we can.

This year we've set a new goal: sharing our passion for a cappella by creating an album that will really let our listeners know how amazing all-female a cappella can be. We have fallen in love with the unlimited creative possibilities of a cappella, and we want to share that love with the world! We hope this inspires new generations of women to share their music, too.

To create an album that's truly inspiring, we need your help.

Your contribution will help us to create a groundbreaking work of art: letting the world know us, hear us, and feel what we feel when we sing together!

Your help will make a truly inspiring album possible.

Your contribution will help us to cover costs of recording, production, and distribution. Simply choose your level of contribution, choose your reward, and please show your support by sharing our story and this Kickstarter page with others!

We are The AcaBelles of Florida State University, and with your help we will record an album to inspire whole new generations of musicians.

**NEW: First off, we would like to say THANK YOU to all of our incredible backers! The response we have received over these last few weeks has been amazing! As we begin the final weeks of our campaign, we're thinking of what we could do if we EXCEED our goal of $10,000. With the extra funds raised, we could not only make a new album, but give back to the music community. With this idea in mind, we decided to create stretch goals in the event that we raise over our goal amount.

If we raise $12,000 in our campaign, AcaBelles will donate to a competitive all-female high school a cappella group in the U.S. If we raise $15,000 we'll workshop and collaborate with an all-female high school a cappella group in the U.S. If we reach $20,000, AcaBelles will host an a cappella festival at Florida State University. The details and rules for entry for this scholarship competition will be outlined if/when the stretch goal of $12,000, $15,000, or $20,000 is reached.

We hope that you will consider donating to this project so that we can continue fostering musicianship and scholarship in young women.**

THANK YOU to Rachel Chalhoub of The Vocal Company for the incredible Kickstarter video!

Risks and challenges

With Kickstarter, if we DO NOT reach our goal within the allotted time frame, we do not receive any of the money and you will be fully refunded your contribution to our project. If we DO reach our goal, we will head straight into the studio to record the album you all helped us fund!

As a group we have extensive experience recording, and we'll be working with professional engineers and others who can oversee this process and help us to produce the best album possible.

Above all, your help will let us succeed!!
