“McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience – changing them from spectators into celebrants and

transforming a concert hall into a playground.” —The Los Angeles Times

One-man orchestra Bobby McFerrin uses his four-octave range and a vast array of vocal techniques to conjure the unmistakable sound of a trumpet in a jazz standard, the cello in a classical composition and the bubbly melody of a pop song.

Best known for his Grammy Award-winning, a capella chartbuster Don’t Worry Be Happy, McFerrin’s artistry extends far beyond this unforgettable hit. Creating spontaneous, beautiful and timeless music that transcends all borders and embraces all cultures, McFerrin is no mere singer – he is music’s last true Renaissance man.
