BYU Vocal Point signs their first booking agency contract with IMG Artists and a record deal with Universal Music Group
[PROVO, Utah, January 11] BYU Vocal Point is pleased to be a part of IMG Artists, “a global leader of performing arts, social media, and festival and event management (IMG Artists). In addition, Vocal Point has also signed with Universal Music Group, the largest music distributors in the world, as part of their label Decca Gold in December of 2018.
“Vocal Point has been bringing joy and incredible musicality to audiences for many years, and so I am delighted they have joined Universal to take their collective talents to an even wider audience both here in the U.S.A and around the world,” said Graham Parker, president of Universal Classics, US (BYU News, 2018).
While Universal Music Group will help Vocal Point with their brand and publicity, IMG Artists will take care of booking all live performances in North America. This means that Vocal Point will be able to perform for more fans. “It’s going to be an extension of what we’ve been doing for years,” says Vocal Point director and alumni McKay Crockett. “But now we can get our music out to people who otherwise wouldn’t hear it” (BYU News, 2018).
Vocal Point is excited to start a new journey with IMG Artists and Universal Music Group. This summer, the group will be touring China and Thailand. It’ll be the first time that BYU Vocal Point will be performing for international audiences.
The BYU a cappella group has been building a strong following since their founding in 1991 and even sold out their very first concert. With over 550,000 social followers, 20 music videos released, and over 55 million views on YouTube, Vocal Point has been catching the world’s attention.
BYU Vocal Point originates in the office of Performing Arts Management at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
