Hey, my name is D.J. Jazz B. I want to explain what an a Cappella is. A Cappella basically, is just singing without the music. A lot of times when you buy a single, or a popular song on a record, a lot of times they come out with the song on it. It's also got an instrumental version of the song, and then you'll have the a Cappella version of the song. A Cappella being not the music, but just the actual singing by itself. You can sing, a lot of times you'll hear singers, singers and rappers, when they're performing live, they'll perform an a cappella song without the band, or they may perform a portion of a song in a Cappella, and then the band joins in with them. That's also popular in a lot of churches, and stuff, so you can see a Cappella singing being real popular there, and basically, anytime you hear singing without music, that's what an a Cappella describes.
