NBC's The Sing-Off Features Fort Lauderdale Singer
The Sing-Off, NBC's a capella battle show, features a Fort Lauderdale native -- Maurice Staple. Last week, his Alabama-based group Committed, began steady progress on the show, which features celebrity judges Ben Folds, Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman, and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.
Although the six-member crew's musical background is mostly gospel and jazz, the show is expanding them into pop and R&B ("What if we did a Lady GaGa song?" "Nah."). In the first episode, this meant trying Maroon 5's "This Love."
Since then, they've performed OneRepublic's "Apologize"...
...and the Police's "Every Breath You Take."
