I love this cover! I know I am coming quite late to the party of Acapella lovers, but this cover of Stromae’s Papaoutai is an awesome song! Pentatonix is really the real deal.

Fun Fact : Pentatonix actually featured in Pitch Perfect 2. Yea, they were the group that represented Canada at the worlds. How cool is that?

Hoping to find someone to sing this to someday. 🙂
So here is my favorite Video for now…. Enjoy….
