Ever wonder what Prince’s music would sound like with all the funk removed?
Now we know, because college a cappella groups love to sing Prince songs. Because, you know, that way, glee clubs are cool!
Below are some collegiate a cappella Prince covers I gathered during the golden age of Napster. One of them I actually like – the first one, “Thieves in the Temple.”
