Mitch Grassi has a voice that makes you do a double-take. As the founder of a capella groups Pentatonix and Superfruit, Grassi has delivered countless viral covers and performances, breathing new life into what were (until he sang them) unbeatable classics. I mean, it takes a lot to bring “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a whole new level, but Grassi does it — and just with his voice.
If that weren’t enough, Mitch also has super enviable style. Scroll through his Insta and you’ll see a healthy helping of leather, latex and Balenciaga, all topped off by the singer’s fashion mullet. Be still our cold goth hearts.
