BYU Vocal Point, a famed a cappella group that featured eight male singers from Brigham Young University, combined harmony, humor and percussion to put on an amazing show! This group, clearly a favorite with audiences, creates seemingly impossible sounds. They performed music from all genres, including rock, pop, country jazz, hymns, and R&B. Each member of Vocal Point is musically talented, creative, and charming on stage.

The Pratthanadee Foundation along with Thai Beverage Public Company and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints organized a Gala Dinner for charity. It featured a benefit concert by the sensational BYU Vocal Point from the United States. M.R. Benchapa Krairiksh, the Chairwoman of the Pratthanadee Foundation, together with Mr. Enrique Cuan, the Founder of the Foundation, opened the event. It was held in the Grand Hall of The Atheneee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Bangkok on Thursday evening, June 6, 2019 to raise funds to support the Better Me project. The project helps women and teenage girls who are disadvantaged educationally, become successful through self-improvement.

The group also performed at two other sold-out shows at the International School of Bangkok on June 7. The BYU Vocal Point singers also did workshops for the music students earlier that day.

On June 8, the BYU Vocal group performed a concert for children and adults with disabilities at the Father Ray Foundation held in the Redemptorist Center in Chonburi province.
