The 'Belles have been the reigning South Champion of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) both in 2009 and 2011! Recently we won second place at the 2011 SoJam Competition in Durham, North Carolina where we were also awarded Best Choreography.
At first, we thought we would need time to rebuild our group. This past year we have taken the arduous task of getting 12 new girls, competing at SoJam, recording an album, and getting ready for ICCA 2012. Many of the new girls are freshmen and aside from being new to Florida State they are new to the wonderful world of a cappella. Surprisingly, the journey has been far from strenuous. We have gained new talented musicians, considerable exposure, and amazing opportunities. The AcaBelles have truly become a family.
Currently we are working on a new CD which will include four generations of AcaBelles repertoire such as Creep, Firework, Dirty Diana and many more favorites. This album is so important as we have competed for the past four years without recording all these songs that have made AcaBelles what it is today. Seamless has so many alumni on it and represents the best of our best that we've gone above and beyond to tribute to our past, present, and future.
We have undergone the task of creating a truly unique listening experience with Seamless by aiming to create a seamless musical journey that reflects the competition style 'Belles has been recognized for. This whole year, we've fundraised for every competition and for the recording of our new CD. Even as this campaign is happening, we are continuing to fundraise for the remainder of the CD as well as our future travels. The 'Belles are also getting ready for the 2012 ICCA competition. We're incredibly excited about showcasing our new set as well as seeing what other groups will have to offer!
