Pentatonix started as a trio, as Grassi, Hoying and Kirstin Maldonado were in the choir for most of their careers in high school. Interestingly, Grassi and Maldonado performed group theatre. Accordingly, the three quickly put together a cappella version of Lady Gaga’s 2010 “Telephone,” featuring Beyoncé to compete with Glee cast members in a local radio station contest. They did not win but went on to participate and succeed, gaining popularity.
Lady Gaga influenced Grassi when he was seventeen, as she came out as part of the LGBTQ community. Grassi also appreciated her sense of self-expression. Grassi dated Hoying briefly at their “arts-oriented” Martin High School.

Mitch Grassi: Career and achievements
As a member of Pentatonix:
Pentatonix is a collaborative quintet of a cappella, singing most of their tracks, and much of their success comes from touring, even globally. They gained national attention in the United States performing on NBC’s 2011 Cappella reality show The Sing-Off which they won. The group got a record label that dropped them as their market was too small with no guarantee of selling albums or concert tickets. However, Grassi finally felt it was beneficial as around the end of 2012 Pentatonix began posting videos to YouTube creating an international fan base.
In June 2012, Pentatonix also released its debut EP, PTX, Volume 1, on their new label, followed by a Christmas EP, PTXmas in November. They released pop 40 hit covers like “Someone I Used To Love” by Gotye, “Gangnam Style” by Psy, and “We Are Young” by Fun. Their big video hit was a November 2013 video doing a medley of Daft Punk tracks, it had ten million views in its first week of release and soared to over 150 million views; it has over 320 million views as of January 2020.
Grassi and Scott Hoying, lifelong friends, vlogged skits, comedy videos, and YouTube duets quickly gain a following; after hundreds of videos, they saw the music they liked the Superfruit they made. Some of their viral videos include a “Miley Cyrus progression” and a Beyoncé song medley, Frozen medley. Superfruit “came from Mitch’s crazy mind” according to Hoying. Starting in 2016, they began integrating original music into the project. Similarly, Future Friends, Part One, Superfruit’s first EP, was released in June 2017, Part Two in September 2017, followed by a full-length album of the same name.
Grassi has become known to be fashion-forward and adventurous; he feels “self-expression is so important to him, particularly through fashion.” He states that he has a “true avant-garde interest in art, fashion and music,” and a duality with Pentatonix that values both the business and the fan base. Besides, his inspiration is the late 80s and early 90s music as well.
