PFA Choir Members Participate in Macy’s A cappella Challenge

Macy’s hopes to sing its way into parents’ and students’ minds this back-to-school season with an a cappella contest inspired by films like the Pitch Perfect franchise and popular a cappella artists. The retailer kicked off a national challenge in September — open to elementary, middle and high schools, as well as colleges — to tap into the growing a cappella trend. Three winning schools will be chosen based on video submissions and each will be awarded $25,000.

Pine Forge Academy under the directorship of Dr. Andrew Marshall accepted the challenge performing the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back.”   The dubbed re-creation, created by Mykel Robinson-Collins, Jael Fields, Rachelle Mason, Glevon Burke, Tyler McKinney, Gregory Hembrey, Jr., and Dr. Marshall can only be described as sensational!

We are proud of the many gifts and talents our students possess.

Winners will be announced on YouTube on or around November 4, 2015.  Please visit: to view the complete video presentation.
