'The Sing-Off' winning group Committed releases video for debut single 'Break Free': Watch it here!


While NBC is gearing up for Season 3 of a cappella singing competition The Sing-Off (which will be recapped once again by yours truly), last year’s winning group, Committed, is getting ready to release their debut album on August 29.

The Alabama gospel sextet has just released a music video for their new single, “Break Free,” which is surprisingly not an a cappella track at all! (But don’t worry, the rest of their album, which is streaming in full here, is mostly full of vocal harmonies and void of instrumentation. That’s how we a caholics like it!)

Check out the radio edit below:

Once you get over the initial shock of hearing Committed’s soulful a cappella sound steamrolled by a drum machine-happy producer, the video is actually kind of cool. Who knew fluorescent lights hanging in a tree could feel so moody? What a thrifty solution!

I do have on problem with the video though: What’s up with all the clenched fists?

A well-placed fist-clench can be a powerful thing in a video, (see: Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper”) but when it’s the only gesticulation shown—and I count 26 uses in “Break Free”—it gets distracting. Who do you think you are? Creed?!

Still, I’m happy that Committed is getting some new music into the market, even if the track is too produced for my taste—I understand the need for the group to find some play on Christian radio. I just hope their next single is a full fledged vocal track, like standout Stevie cover “As.”

What do you think of “Break Free” Music Mixers? And more importantly, what do you think about this important poll?!

    Oh, I remember them. Man they were hard to listen to. So, so bad.

      lol..nice try…begone troll

    • tnosnibor

      Agreed. Creed is my least favourite band ever. All of their music sounds the same.

  • Ace

    Man, these guys are *so* talented (clenched fists or no). My only issue with this track is that I wish I hear more of *them* and less… eletronica, or whatever that is. Their voices don’t need to be dressed up with effects and whatnot.

    • Asti

      I do agree with you,they are my mentor.

  • Peter

    I’ve heard other a cappella groups go the drum machine route. I guess talent alone isn’t marketable — it has to have imaginary instruments also.

  • tryecrot

    Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.

    This is exactly what’s wrong with the recording industry. These guys can sing, they don’t need autotune and to be run over with electronic “instruments” – just let them sing and it will be a thing of beauty. No way would I buy this.

    • Wana

      Loved the video! These guys have true raw talent and I hope they continue to wow us for years to come with their harmonious vocals!!!

  • Jeanne

    Loved this group on the Sing Off. So glad they won! Already bought their new CD and want a full video.They are all so talented. Hope they do well!!!

    Talent of singing and acting is awesome.
    May I suggest you all watch Pastor Ivor Myers sermon on “Sonic Warfare”. Then decide if your style of music is completely free of the clutches of the devil and Glorifies and Praises God from God’s viewpoint and not yours. Let God be the Judge and not your group.
    May God Bless your group and accept your praises. Also watch “Escape from the Black Hole”

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints
    for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
