BYU Vocal Point
After a record-breaking eight years with Stevens at the helm, Vocal Point is once again directed by one of their own: McKay Crockett. Crockett’s 4 years in VP provided him plenty of opportunities to hone his leadership and sound engineering skills. He eagerly stepped into command of in 2012.
Crockett began a new frontier for Vocal Point. Not only did the group continue to innovate beyond any other group in collegiate a cappella with live performances (including the use of in-ear monitors), but with internet usage as well. Producing more media became a focus of the group. The group’s first pop music video, “Brave”, began an string of music videos that launched Vocal Point from a couple thousand subscribers in 2012 to well over 100K today! The most popular video, “Nearer My God to Thee”, has over 5 million views.
Along with the videos and accompanying singles, album production took a front seat. VP’s first-ever All-Hymns Album (“Lead Thou Me On”) was released in October 2012. A year a half later, “Spectrum” was released in 2014, and a year and a half after that, Vocal Point’s very first Christmas album “He is Born” in 2015.
