Pentatonix to sing NFL Thursday Night Football opening song

🕐 1 min read

NEW YORK (AP) — Grammy-winning a cappella group Pentatonix will sing the opening theme song for NBC’s “Thursday Night Football.”

NBC said Tuesday that Pentatonix will sing the track “Weekend Go.” It was inspired from the a capella group’s original song “Sing” off their 2015 self-titled album.

NBC will produce nine Thursday night games that will use Pentatonix’s song and air on NBC or the NFL Network. The first game is on Nov. 3 when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the NFL Network. NBC will air five of the Thursday night games starting with the Carolina Panthers taking on the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 17.

Pentatonix is made up of Kevin Olusola, Kirstin Maldonado, Avi Kaplan, Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying. The group won the third season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” and picked up Grammys for best arrangement, instrumental or a cappella in 2015 and 2016. Members of the group are from Arlington. 

The group said in a statement they “feel so honored” to be working with the NFL. They released a new album, “A Pentatonix Christmas,” last week.

Carrie Underwood sings the opening theme song for “Sunday Night Football.”
