  • Lyrics
  • In the third single from their debut album, Pentatonix offers one solution to deal with life's problems: sing. They wrote the energetic track with Boys Like Girls frontman Martin Johnson and songwriter Sam Hollander (Train, One Direction).
  • PTX baritone Scott Hoying and vocal percussionist Kevin Olusola share lead vocal duties on the track. Hoying recalls trying to keep up with Martin Johnson's boundless energy: "He is the most energetic human being on the entire earth; he runs around the room and does like back flips. It's so full out, it's intimidating…He made me sing it over and over and over. But the song just came together so fast 'cos we were so inspired, and it really is just a celebration of what we do; sing, anyone can do it. And I am obsessed with that song; it's probably in my top three favorite songs on the whole album."
