BYU Vocal Point’s “Magic: Disney Through Time” reached third on BillBoard’s Classical Crossover Chart. The album features 11 Disney songs from all decades of Disney movies and features performances from various singers and groups. 

Ben Fales, general manager and executive producer for the group believes their music video cover of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and adding the audio streams on multiple platforms helped propel the album to number three on the Billboard’s chart. Fales said over 60% of recent viewers came from outside the United States. 

“Combining the nostalgia of Disney music with the energy of the Vocal Point guys, this album was destined to be a favorite,” BYU Vocal Point Director McKay Crockett said. “When I saw that the album charted on Billboard, it made me so proud of our guys and the hard work each of them has put into making this album successful.”

Over seventy Life Science students displayed their research through posters hung in the BYU Conference Center on Nov. 10.

The studies done by the students were partially funded by a College Undergraduate Research Award (CURA). CURA donated money grants to undergraduate students working with faculty members on various discoveries.

Each year, judges select three presentations from each department to receive cash prizes. The presentations range from a variety of research topics. Topics ranged from the distribution of the Arizona Mountain Kingsnake, to how school nutrition policies affect breakfast consumption rates among children.
