Singing in front of a live audience can shake some people–even professionals. But a capella group “Straight No Chaser” has no problem performing for a crowd because they know the end result is going to be a standing ovation, that’s how good they are.

This ten-man group was actually formed at the University of Indiana over 20 years ago. They’ve risen to fame through sheer talent, and some funny lyrics they’ve written to songs like Christmas carols.  Their staying power–they’re still touring after nearly three decades, although with a few personnel changes–is a testament to that.

This is a cover of, in their own words, “one of the best songs from the 1960s, one of the quintessential hits. Written and performed by Ben E. King, here is ‘Stand By Me.'” They’re not kidding about it being a fantastic song and they do it justice with this a capella version that’s so good it will make you smile.
