Any recommendations for a beautiful acapella song for a lyrical solo? My daughter is 10. We were going to do a jazz solo for our 2nd solo (in addition to a contemporary ballet solo she's learning for YAGP) but her comp SO really wants to still do lyrical solo with her again (since she seems to do really well with lyrical and loves it) and is envisioning an acapella song. Thanks for any ideas!

At a comp I was at a few weeks ago a dancer did a lyrical solo to an acapella version of Amazing Grace, it was very powerful, and it was amazing to hear how the theatre got dead silent while she danced.

elastigal - are you in the Chicago area? Because I had the same experience watching a lyrical solo to an a capella version of Amazing Grace. It was dead silent in the audience while the dancer was on stage.

Awesome! Thanks for the suggestion. I just found a fantastic version! Still open to more ideas though so I can present SO with a few options. Thanks again!

DD used this for a contemporary solo last year (she did not use the spoken part at the beginning).

Do you want a Capella as in a solo with no background music, or a group a Capella, aka Pentatonix and Pitch Perfect? If the latter, I love this cover of Beyonce's Pretty Hurts. It's available on iTunes.

Thanks for all the input. Great suggestions but still open to more. Won't officially decide on a song for at least a month or so. [smile]

Still searching for the perfect acapella song! Any and all ideas welcome. Love the suggestions so far but not feeling we've found "THE" song quite yet. [smile]

Ioanna Gika- Gone(not completely acapella, but still has that quietly powerful feeling that I think you might be looking for): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhyC0k6j3Rg
And here's a cover of Gone that's completely acapella: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd-75MhDOlc

shedaisy battle hymn of the republic - I can't link it but it is on youtube

My dd has this on her short list but I don't think it will fly with the choreographer she wants to use.

I love anything by Straight No Chaser. But for this purpose (depending on age):

I Won't Give Up
Fix You
Hallelujiah
The Man Who Can't Be Moved
Creep
Soldier
Kiss from a Rose
