How in THE world can Toto's "Africa" be re-mixed into a Christmas montage? Better yet, with over 9 million views, how have I never seen this before?! If you don't play this start to finish, you're missing a fun holiday treat from Straight No Chaser, Indiana University’s men’s a cappella troupe.

I saw that a few weeks ago & love it!!
I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before. It was perfect! Thanks for sharing it. (And I may as well.)
Oh my! I just saw these guys for the first time last night on the Christmas in Washington special and I.am.in.love. I have a soft spot for male a capella choirs. They did this medley and I was loving it. Sweet Son #1 got a kick out of it and wondered aloud what Africa had to do with Christmas and he’d never heard that Christmas Carol before!
just so’s you know, this video is actually 10 years old. the story of how it popped up on the internet — and led to a record deal — is pretty cool.
these guys are the ORIGINAL straight no chaser.
I heard them last year and love them! I had to get their whole Christmas CD, which they just made this year.
I saw this last year and I had forgotten all about it until today – thank you! 🙂
Ok – I never take the time to watch these, but I trusted you with the last one and it was great….so here goes. 🙂
Yep – you came through. Being a vocalist..this put me right back in my college choir days (right down the street from IU) 🙂
Love it. Love it. Could not love it more. Wanna marry it.
We heard this song on the car radio night before last for the first time ever. It is great! Thanks for telling us about the video. How fun!
Forgot to put blog info in last comment. It’s in there now.
