Pen­ta­tonix to sing Thurs­day Night Foot­ball open­ing song

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Grammy-win­ning a cap­pella group Pen­ta­tonix will sing the open­ing theme song for NBC’s “Thurs­day Night Foot­ball.”

NBC said Tues­day that Pen­ta­tonix will sing the track “Week­end Go.” It was in­spired from the group’s orig­i­nal song “Sing” off their 2015 self-ti­tled al­bum.

NBC will pro­duce nine Thurs­day night games that will use Pen­ta­tonix’s song and air on NBC or the NFL Net­work. The first game is on Nov. 3 when the At­lanta Fal­cons visit the Tampa Bay Buc­ca­neers on the NFL Net­work. NBC will air five of the Thurs­day night games start­ing with the Carolina Pan­thers tak­ing on the New Or­leans Saints on Nov. 17.

Pen­ta­tonix is made up of Kevin Olu­sola, Kirstin Mal­don­ado, Avi Ka­plan, Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoy­ing. The group won the third sea­son of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” and won Gram­mys for best ar­range­ment, in­stru­men­tal or a cap­pella in 2015 and 2016.

The group said in a state­ment they “feel so hon­ored” to be work­ing with the NFL. They re­leased a new al­bum, “A Pen­ta­tonix Christ­mas,” last week.
