Acapella Cover of Katy Perry Firework by Mike Tompkins

ACAPELLA: Mike Tompkins beatboxes ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry

It has to be said that Mike Tompkins is an incredibly talented acapella muso. His cover version of Firework by Katy Perry is thoroughly impressive and entertaining. Tompkins turns a song that’s sentimental about plastic bags floating in the wind into something that, in my opinion, is far better.

Acapella music is solo or group vocal singing without instrumental sound, or a piece intended to be performed in this way. In modern usage, acapella often refers to an all-vocal group performance of any style, including modern pop/rock. – Wikipedia

Here’s a bit about the talented Mike Tompkins from his new website:

“Mike’s novel ‘A Capella’ music has stemmed from over a decade of demanding and diverse musical and production pursuits, starting with beatboxing at the young age of 8. Confident yet amazingly down to earth, Mike’s goal remains to make great music, put a smile on people’s faces, and show his diversity as an artist. With over 200 000 YouTube subscribers and close to 30 million views of his songs, Mike is well on his way to achieving these goals, and it is just the beginning!” –
