The Vocal Majority (VM) is a Dallas, Texas-based men's chorus of over 150 singers, billed as "America's Premier Pops Chorus." The VM is part of the Dallas Metro chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Under the direction of Jim Clancy, they have won a record eleven International Chorus Championships (1975, 1979, 1982, 1985, 1988, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006).

This record is even more impressive given that the Society contest rules do not permit any chorus to compete again for two years after winning an International Chorus Championship (to give other choruses a chance), so no chorus can win twice less than three years apart. As seen in the list of championship years, they only had one four-year span between wins, from 1975 to 1979. They came in second place to the Thoroughbreds in 1978. After that, they proceeded to win the gold at every International competition in which they competed until 2009, when the Ambassadors of Harmony defeated them for the gold. In July 2010, the Vocal Majority again earned a silver medal at the International Chorus Championship in Philadelphia. Longtime director Jim Clancy announced prior to the 2010 competition that it would be his last as director.

The Vocal Majority has released over twenty recordings and has traveled extensively.

Several members of the Vocal Majority have also won the International Quartet Championship with the quartets Max Q, Acoustix, Side Street Ramblers, Dealer's Choice, Rural Route 4, and Rapscallions.
