“There is something almost superhuman about the range and technique of Bobby McFerrin.” – Newsweek.

A 10-time Grammy Award winner with a four-octave range, Bobby McFerrin is one of the world’s best-known vocal innovators and improvisers, a renowned classical conductor, the creator of the immensely popular song Don’t Worry Be Happy, and a passionate spokesman for music education. His recordings have sold more than 20 million copies, and his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea, the Vienna Philharmonic and Herbie Hancock have helped to establish him as an ambassador of classical and jazz. “Bobby’s greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants and transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.” — Los Angeles Times.
