What 15 Actors From “Pitch Perfect” Look Like, and What They’re Up to 10 Years After Its Premiere
In 2012, Pitch Perfect was released, a musical comedy somewhat out of the ordinary, as it told the story of a group of college girls trying to win an a cappella choir contest. The Barden Bellas knew how to conquer the audience with their beautiful voices, the peculiar way of mashing up one song with another, and maintaining a rhythm that was as catchy as it was entertaining.
