Fall 2015 — Outspoken is a men’s a cappella group at Oregon State, and one of several a cappella groups that thrive in our community.

Founded in 2002, the group has recorded four albums and participated multiple times in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA), where hundreds of collegiate a cappella groups compete annually. Groups are judged on their visual and vocal performances. Outspoken made it to the ICCA semi-finals in 2006.

Outspoken mainly focuses on contemporary and classical hits and has a history of adding their own unique flair to popular tunes such as “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood and “Lovestoned” by Justin Timberlake.

During the school year, you can catch Outspoken performing on the steps inside the front entrance of the Memorial Union every Friday at 4:30 p.m. with two other OSU a cappella groups, Divine and Power Chord. Check out the Outspoken Facebook page for updates and videos.
