Earlier today, Pentatonix released a deluxe version of their certified platinum 2016 holiday album - A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe and are set to embark on their A Pentatonix Christmas Tour on December 3rd in Chicago.

Their YouTube channel boasts more than 13.7 million subscribers, yielding over 2.7 billion video views, and their 2015 self-titled album has been certified gold after debuting #1 on Billboard's 200.

Additionally, seven of their albums reached the top 10 on Billboard's 200 chart (2 at #1) and received multiple RIAA certifications for multi-platinum, platinum and gold selling albums and singles. In 2015, the group released its first tour documentary - On My Way Home - and appeared in the feature film Pitch Perfect 2. Earlier this year, the group released PTX Vol. 4 - Classics which features their Grammy Award-winning performance of "Jolene" with Dolly Parton, as well as an arrangement of the John Lennon classic "Imagine."

Hudson currently serves as a coach on NBC's four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice." Last December, Hudson starred as Motormouth Maybelle on NBC's "Hairspray Live!," where she gave a powerful rendition of "I Know Where I've Been," for which she received rave reviews. In May 2016 Hudson completed her triumphant run in the acclaimed revival of "The Color Purple," performing the role of Shug Avery in her Broadway debut.
