THE SING OFF: Afro Blue Advances Again

It was a tough night of competition on the NBC show the "Sing-Off" as the final six groups, including Greenville native Christy Dashiell and her group "Afro Blue," had to perfom two songs.

The first song was from the classic rock genre. “Afro Blue” went with American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The judges had mixed reviews of the performance. The second song of the night was country. “Afro Blue” picked Need You Now by Lady Antebellum.

After the very emotionally charged performance the judges were back in love with the acapella group from Howard University. After some tense momments “Afro Blue” was the last group named to advance to next weeks compeition.

There are now only five groups left.
