It’s no wonder Beyoncé signed Chloe x Halle to her Parkwood Entertainment management firm – these girls can sing!

The musicians and sisters went all out for their performance at the PEOPLE Now Concert Series Presented by Toyota Music while taking fans through all five songs from their EP Sugar Symphony.

Starting off with their hit “Drop,” the girls pumped the crowd up while Halle played guitar and Chloe rocked out on the keyboard.

“They just look like they’re having so much fun, I loved it.” fan Casey, 15, told PEOPLE about the concert. “It was like a dance party for them and us. ”

Chloe x Halle originally made their mark on YouTube by uploading covers of their favorite songs. After their cover of Beyoncé’s “Pretty Hurts” went viral with more than 12 million views, it caught the attention of the superstar herself who then signed them.

And Queen Bey has had a lot of advice for the young sisters and their unique sound.

“Beyoncé has always told us to keep going and really keep believing in ourselves. It really struck us because we make music that’s a bit different, that doesn’t really sound like everything that you may hear,” Halle revealed. “So for her to say, ‘Just keep being different, let the world catch up to you,’ is something that was very great.”

The girls showed why Beyoncé was so impressed as they sang their songs “Lazy Love” and “Fall” for the dancing crowd. Their mixture of harmonies and amazing beats is why they decided to title their EP Sugar Symphony.

“We wanted a cool title and we were trying to figure out a cool alliteration,” Chloe, 18, explained to PEOPLE Now host Jeremy Parsons after the show. “My sister and I love harmonies.”

“So we think of that as the sugar of everything,” Halle, 16, said. “And then also the hard beats that Chloe makes, we like to blend them [with the harmonies] – so it comes together like a symphony.”

The Atlanta-born singers continued their dance party and closed out the show with “Baby Bird” and “Thunder” – leaving fans impressed with their performance.

“They’re even better in person than they are on YouTube,” Olivia, 17, said.
