RECENT EVENTS - ignite with the EFG London Jazz Festival - Vive

Vive | Royal Albert Hall

Vive is a 6-part a cappella group who are reimagining the close-harmony jazz/ spiritual/ a cappella sound by bringing rich, diverse harmonies with a fresh, contemporary sound, taking inspiration from the legendary Take 6 and the Real Group.

They recently won the final of The Voice Festival UK 2013 and were presented with the Ward Swingle Award for outstanding originality, outstanding musicality and also best arrangement.

Vive's aspirations are to do everything they can to help inspire a new generation of music lovers and bring back the freshness of the human voice to the industry. They also have a strong underlying message of perseverance, self-acceptance and motivation, which they share through their music.
