This list of the best a cappella acts in the world includes mouth musicians who have released recordings or performed live. These are truly the greatest a cappella bands of all time, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best a cappella music.


Examples of great a capella groups include Manhattan Transfer and The Real Group. Rank the best artists on this list to see their way to the top of the list. If you don't like Home Free Vocal Band or The Ambassadors of Harmony, then give them a thumbs down.
