2Knight 2Knight is the premier contemporary pop a cappella ensemble at Kings High School. Founded in 2011 they hail from Kings Mills, Ohio. The eight fine divas of 2Knight 2Knight are sassy, fierce, and full of heart. Since their inception, the group has performed locally at school and community functions including pep rallies, football games, band and dance competitions, Mason City Council meetings, corporate events for Macy’s and Proctor & Gamble, and an event for the USO Tribute Cincinnati for the Wounded Warrior project.
The ladies of 2Knight 2Knight dedicate countless hours of extra-curricular time for their evening rehearsals. Many of these performers are also involved in other performance and athletic activities. Over the past four years 2Knight 2Knight has changed from a mixed a cappella group at its inception to its current formation of an all-female group. Leaving the guys behind was a big risk for the eight girls, but they showed their school that all-female a cappella has a place at Kings! There have been many learning curves associated with this switch, but the group has been able to overcome these issues to create a sound that is uniquely their own.
On the national level they have competed in the International Championship of High School A Cappella and were chosen to be featured on the 2014-2015 Best of High School A Cappella compilation CD. The ladies represented all-female a cappella at the Kettering National A Cappella Festival when they were chosen as an opener for nationally recognized a cappella groups ARORA/SONOS and Voice Play. In 2013, the ladies performed for members of the a cappella super group Pentatonix who called 2Knight 2Knight a group of “Devastating Divas.” Although they were not able to attend the conference, 2Knight 2Knight was recently chosen to perform at the SheSings 2015 Woman’s A Cappella Association Conference.
The future looks bright for 2Knight 2Knight as they are currently working on recording songs for their first studio album. The girls have also been chosen to perform at the 2016 Ohio Music Education Association’s professional development conference in Cincinnati, Ohio in January.
