One of the aspects of the Internet I personally appreciate the most, and that I think makes the Internet such an endlessly fascinating place, is how easy it allows for talented people to display their talents and how much more open and democratized the process for discovering talented people has become.
Enter Julien Neel.
I happened upon one of his videos earlier today and was quite impressed. You see, while at first glance it appears as if there are four people singing in the video below, you quickly realize that it is just one person – Neel – singing four different parts of a barbershop quartet.
Have a listen:
Pretty impressive, huh?
I decided to poke around Neel’s YouTube channel a bit and I found plenty of other entertaining songs he’d covered barbershop quartet style. I’m posting several of my personal favorites here for your midday enjoyment, kicking it off with a Christmas classic.
