Scott Hoying & Mitch Grassi Talk Pentatonix's Cover of Ed Sheeran's 'Timeless' Ballad 'Perfect'
Last night’s (April 12) GLAAD Media Awards was a star-studded affair, and among the celebrity guests were Pentatonix’s Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi, who also perform as a duo under the moniker Superfruit.
The pair talked to Billboard about Pentatonix’s new music video for their cover of Ed Sheeran’s ballad “Perfect.”
“That song is just so timeless and so beautiful,” explained Grassi. “Honestly, it was just perfect for a Pentatonix arrangement -- it was just asking for it. It was perfect.”
Hoying thought the ballad was a great fit for the a cappella group as well: "It’s one of those ballads you hear and you’re just like, 'This is a perfectly written song.' It has beautiful melodies and chords and that always goes well with a PTX arrangement. It was really a no-brainer."
Check out the music video for Pentatonix’s rendition of “Perfect” below.
