Attention is one of only two all-female groups on campus. Attention was founded in January of 2013 by Mikaela Kemsley and began as a themed group that sang only musical theatre, a genre most acappella groups never touch. Attention performs primarily Disney and Broadway arrangements, but since the fall of 2014 has branched out to include popular music repertoire. Attention is made up of ten women, and is currently directed by Kyle Nelson.
Beyond Measure was created to continue to uplift people through pop music as with other a cappella groups here at BYU. In its first year, Beyond Measure went from a brand-new group to a nationally ranked and recognized group and wants to continue to be a source of good in the world. Beyond Measure's vision is to be a professional, unified group centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ that inspires all through uplifting music to do good works in order to become closer to the Savior. Beyond Measure's mission is to accomplish these things by personally strengthening ourselves daily - physically, emotionally, and spiritually - to be able to strengthen others, not only through music, but acts of charity and service as well.

Familiar Ring is the self-proclaimed "most attractive" group on campus, and was started in 2007 with the intent to get girls. It has been a complete success, given that all of the original creators are now off and married with kids. Their successors, however, are mostly single and carry on the noble goal of the group. Specializing in love ballads, goofy dance moves, and divine vocals, Familiar Ring aims to leave women everywhere swooning!
Provocalize was formed in Fall 2014 by Alex Winder as a mixed a cappella group under the name Major 6th. After increasing from a 6-person group to a 10-person group the following semester, the name was changed to avoid a number association, and with that new name came a new and improved sound. No era or style of music is off limits for the group, singing everything from early Disney classics to boy band material to soulful, modern pop. The vision for Provocalize is to be seen as one of the most energetic and exciting performing groups on campus, and while they are still new in the game, they are on their way to reaching that goal soon.
The Staff was born in Jan 2015, when the club officers thought it would be fun to sing a number for the Winter 2015 opening social. They followed that up with a performance at the Winter 2015 Y-Cappella Showcase, and a new group was born.
