Fifth Element is a six-member all-male contemporary a cappella group made up of students from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Since the group's creation in 1998, it has performed music from every genre ranging from Pop, Rock, R&B, Hip-Hop, Country, Classical, Choral and Jazz to original compositions by members of the group. Along with performing at venues and putting on two concerts throughout the year, Fifth Element typically tours in the second week in January. Going all across the Midwest, the group performs concerts and puts on workshops in high school and elementary schools, teaching students about the history of music, a capella music, the human voice, and an introduction to vocal percussion, as well as telling students of all ages to continue singing throughout their lives.
Recent note-worthy accomplishments by the group include being chosen for Ben Folds’s ‘Ben Folds Presents: University A Capella’ Album for their rendition of “Fair”. Fifth Element was also chosen for their recording of “So Insane” for CASA’s National Release of ‘Sing 7’, an a capella compellation album of groups from across the United States. Fifth Element just released their newest album, "Runaway", which was recently nominated for Best Hip-Hop/R&B Song and Best Male Collegiate Solo for the 2011 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards.
