Bobby McFerrin’s exhilarating vocal vocabulary – call and response, global rhythms, soaring melodies, lush harmonies, funny noises, invented language, silence, prayers, and laughter – reminds us all of how much fun it is to be alive.
“I want to bring audiences into the incredible feeling of freedom that I get when I sing,” says Bobby, “I want everyone to leave the theatre and sing in their own kitchens the next morning.”
A cappella singers, beatboxers, and vocalists of all genres claim Bobby McFerrin as an inspiration. The jazz and classical worlds celebrate his innovative technique and spirit. His solo performances and collaborations – with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianists Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, the Vienna and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, and eager volunteers from audiences all over the world – are legendary.
Ten Grammy Awards and his #1 global hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” are pretty impressive, but “Bobby McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants,” says the Los Angeles Times, “transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.”
