The unstoppable University of Rochester Yellowjackets continue to sing their way into our hearts.

On Friday, April 5, the a cappella group will host "Concert for a Cure" to benefit FARA -- Freidrich's Ataxia Research Alliance.

FA is a neuromuscular disease that attacks a person's muscles and interferes with talking and eating patterns. Most patients end up needing a wheelchair to get around.

Press play on the video player for Rebecca Leclair's interview with one of the Yellowjackets who is dedicating his performance to his sister, Marlise, who has FA and to two Pittsford sisters, Laura and Sara Ferrarone, as well.
