Hi! We’re Resonance A Cappella from UCLA, and we are on the verge of starting our very 1st album! We just need your help to bring this project to life.

Resonance was founded in 2012, but despite being so young we are ready to take on this huge project! Beginning as just a quintet, Resonance has quickly grown in sound and has nearly quadrupled in size. As one of the youngest groups on campus, we have established ourselves with a unique sound and a high level of musical excellence.

We’ve been lucky enough to be given opportunities to share our sound at several amazing events. In 2014 and 2016, we shared our music with over 10,000 people at UCLA’s Spring Sing, the university’s largest, highly competitive musical showcase. In 2015, we competed in the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival (LAAF) Scholastic Competition. Outside of our competitive drive, we have been able to share our music for extremely important causes. In 2015, we worked with the Pediatric Aids Coalition (PAC) and performed at Dance Marathon, a school-wide fundraiser to take a stand against pediatric HIV/AIDS. Last year, we were also very fortunate to work with Mobile-Clinic, a service-based group focused on ending the homeless epidemic in the greater Los Angeles area.

Resonance’s success and opportunities have definitely not come easy and over the years we have faced many challenges. Four years ago, Resonance wasn’t even on the map at UCLA, but because of our hard work, determination and Resonance love, we defied expectations and have become one of the premiere a cappella groups on campus. 

Speaking of this Resonance love, family is what we’re all about. We are always with each other and we are always a family first. We have very frequent "Rezzy" board-game nights, "Rezzy" retreats, and we’re just about to have "Rezzy" Secret Santa! We are always there for one another and that, above all, is what makes this group so special and you can hear it in our music every time we step on stage. 

This album will be a product of our passion, drive, hard-work, emotion, and love. To be able to share our music with you, we need to raise a total sum of $11,000 to fund recording, editing, mixing, and mastering with the unmatched a cappella professionals at The Vocal Company

We know how massive this project is, but this is the perfect year to do it! At the end of this year, there will be no more original members of Resonance and we really want to preserve the progress that we’ve made so far. This is the last time we will ever be able to record an album with original members!

We need your help to make our first album happen. With your support, we can capture and celebrate the first five years of Resonance A Cappella. Thank you so much for listening and supporting our love for music. And thank you for allowing us to spread the world’s universal language – music.      

Risks and challenges

Making an entire album is a large undertaking with many steps along the way. Each step comes with its own challenges. As this is our first time, many of us do not know exactly what to expect. That’s why we’ve partnered with The Vocal Company, so that their experience and expertise can guide us through any and all obstacles we may come across and help us produce the best album possible. As of now, the biggest risk for the album would be funding. If we can’t raise the $11,000, we won’t be able to afford many integral steps in the album, but we know with your help, we can make it happen!
