Crush?!, the first vocal band in Luxembourg, connects on a very pure and human level during their performance. In between Michèle Heusbourg tells the audience about the interesting situations the group has experienced while singing a cappella in a world dominated by individuality. The human connection is essential for the a cappella music genre, to harmonise musically and energetically, as the creation of music only happens through a common group effort while solely relying on various voices. Supported by 'Institut Européen de Chant Choral' and the 'Oeuvre Nationale Grande-Duchesse Charlotte', Crush?! is the first vocal band in Luxembourg. Under the coaching guidance of artistic director Andy Loor, these 11 singers and 1 beatboxer explore a new take on music with an a capella sound to modern music. Crush?! are here to crush your expectations of music! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
