A cappella (Italian): like the chapel

Vocal music without instrumental accompaniment.
The band died when they cut power but Sid just sang acapella in the dark like he never heard them anyway.

A cappella is an Italian phrase which means 'in the style of the chapel. ' It was originally used to refer to music that was sung in a chapel or small worship space without accompanying instruments, as opposed to a large church where vocal music was usually accompanied by an organ.
Fuck the beat, I go acapella
Fuck a papa doc, fuck a clock, fuck a trailer, fuck everybody
Fuck y'all if you doubt me
I'm a piece of fucking white trash, I say it proudly! - Eminem – 8 Mile: B-Rabbit vs Papa Doc.

An acapella is a genre of music consisting of either a singular person or a group (eg. pentatonix) who sings a certain song without music, sometimes creating their own music with talents like beatboxing.
Pentatonix: We just released a new acapella!
World: nobody fucking gives a damn, we're too busy remembering xxxtentacion (r.i.p brother)
