Week six was hip-hop week on The Sing-Off.
The genre was a tough challenge for a number of groups, and when the smoke cleared, The Collective were on their way home to Nashville, but they are leaving the show with no regrets.
“We were extremely happy with our performance,” says group member Ruby Amanfu.
“If you had been a fly on the wall that week, you would have seen some people really pulling out all the stops, drawing on every possible inspiration to do what we felt was best for that song.”
Daniel Ellsworth agrees. “Despite the fact that the hip hop genre was sort of out of our comfort zone, I think we went in really confident.
“It was different than some of the other stuff we had been doing. And so it was a little more fun,” he says, “a little more playful, so we thought we were just going to go out and have a blast. And that’s what we did. We just left it all out there.”
How will this experience influence the group members’ solo careers?
