Original songs remain a challenge for any modern a cappella group, regardless of level or age. It's an entirely separate skill from arranging and performing. Perennial godfathers Rockapella have never been shy about delivering original music, and their current tally has gone over 100 songs throughout the many albums across the group's long career!
Recently, the group has been focusing on crafting pop singles with videos, when not delivering twice-monthly episodes for their recent cover series "Rockapella Jams."
Their newest single "Workin My Way to You" was just released
It's a colorful history, as with anything Rockapella. Recent original songs include two during election season, which should survive as a catchy relationships song.

Rockapella of the 1990s and 2000s had nearly a dozen albums containing a continuous stream of originals, and two in a row around the millennium were all, or mostly all original music, receiving airplay and accolades.
Some of those songs include: "Why," "I'll Hear Your Voice," "Have a Little Faith," and "So Much Better."
