Their 2015 self-titled album is certified gold after debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Additionally, nine of their albums reached the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 (with two albums reaching No. 1) and received multiple RIAA certifications for multi-platinum, platinum, and gold-selling albums and singles. Their tracks “Mary, Did You Know?” and “Hallelujah” were certified platinum, while the Pentatonix original “Can’t Sleep Love” was certified gold. The group has had two holiday specials on NBC, released their tour documentary “On My Way Home” in 2015, and appeared in the feature film “Pitch Perfect 2.”
In October of 2017, Pentatonix released a deluxe version of their certified platinum 2016 holiday album “A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe” and completed a sold-out Christmas tour that December. The following year, in April of 2018, Pentatonix released the first collection in the group’s PTX Presents series, “PTX Presents: Top Pop, Vol. I,” which features 11 PTX-curated modern pop performances, and wrapped their 39-city North American tour that September.
