UT a cappella group celebrates slain student's life at concert

UT Ransom Notes honor Harrison Brown

AUSTIN - Days after University of Texas at Austin student Harrison Brown was killed on campus, the school's a cappella group, "The Ransom Notes," held a concert as a celebration of his life Friday evening.

Brown, an aspiring musician who loved being a Longhorn, was a new member of the a cappella group. Friday night would have been Brown's first performance with the group.

The 19-year-old was considering pursuing a liberal arts degree or a degree in economics, but his brother said he wanted to follow his passion for music.

After a week of somber events on campus, the Ransom Notes decided to use the performance as a tribute to his life and a celebration of Brown's light and goodness

Brown posted this video below to his Facebook page of himself singing "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain:
