The Barden Bellas Reunited for a ‘Pitch Perfect’ Rendition of a Beyoncé Song
Just wait for Anna Kendrick's surprise message to her castmates.
When Pitch Perfect’s Barden Bellas reunite for a good cause, you must stop everything and listen. The Bellas put together an acapella rendition of Beyoncé’s “Love on Top” to raise awareness and money for UNICEF, which is currently helping children around the world affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) and the explosions in Beirut, Lebanon.
All the Bellas, save for Ester Dean—Anna Kendrick, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Kelley Jakle, Hailee Steinfeld, Shelley Regner, Chrissie Fit, and Rebel Wilson—participated in the virtual collaboration.
“We are Back Baby!!” Camp wrote in an August 17th Instagram post.
Fellow Bella Snow wrote in her own Instagram caption, “These pitches are back. Whether you like it or not. We are here, again, making music with our mouths for two very important reasons: Beyoncé and a great cause.”
“Listen up,” Camp continued. “There’s nothing perfect about the world we’re living in. Families around the globe are suffering from the impact of the #COVID19 pandemic, especially those in Lebanon who are facing crisis after crisis. But we can all pitch in and help!”
The proceeds from every stream and download of the Barden Bellas’ “Love on Top” will go straight to UNICEF. You can listen to the cover on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, and Apple Music—all linked over on the site in the Bellas’ bios.
You can also donate directly to UNICEF if you want to put in the extra work and help the Bellas with their cause.
If you check out the video on the Universal Pictures YouTube page, you can also check out an intro from Pitch Perfect commentators, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins. From there, you can also access all the ways to donate and download.
“As the key gets higher, and Kelley takes over the top notes,” Kendrick said via note cards in the video, “I just want to say, I miss you guys so much!” We miss you guys, too, and we’d definitely be down for more Bella meetups in the future.
