Bryce Romney posted a video on Vine at around 1 a.m. from inside the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC). Romney, a member of BYU’s Vocal Point, was not in the HFAC to study.
Vocal Point members and extras walked onto campus at 9 p.m. Monday night and didn’t leave until 6 a.m. Tuesday. Some even stayed until 8 a.m.
“Finally get to go to bed. Goodnight everyone :)” Vocal Point member Parker O’Very tweeted at around 8:30 a.m.
Fans were invited to be part of the music video shoot, and many received that invitation with pleasure. Vocal Point extras arrived at the HFAC wearing all white and stayed awake with the musical a cappella group.
Accounting student Madison Jorgensen attended the video shoot and was put to work. She tweeted, “@VocalPoint I think you guys have officially put me off stairs for the next month. #VPvid #allnightVP #somuchfun”
Jorgensen also tweeted, “It was really tiring, but it was one of the best things I’ve ever done.”
Sophomore Sarah Jensen from Tustin, California, also mentioned the HFAC stairs. “Just ran up stairs for 25 minutes straight. They are great personal trainers,” she tweeted.
Even with some injuries and exhaustion, the Vocal Point singers and extras had a night to remember for years to come.
Those who stayed the night used the hashtags #VPvid, #allnightVP and #vpsleepover to give updates or post pictures. Vocal Point even performed a few numbers after the all-nighter for those who attended.
Only those who spent the night in the HFAC know details about the music video. BYU student Rebekah Pierce used the hashtag #christmas on her Instagram, so perhaps a holiday video is in the works.
Those who slept will have to wait to see what Vocal Point comes out with next. Business student Sam Owens, from Carson City, Nevada, wrote that “this video is gonna be amazing.”
