McFerrin is, as usual, puckish and ingenious: scat-singing, overdubbing harmonies, honoring a simple melody or bouncing all over the place.

Bobby McFerrin Returns!

Bobby McFerrin is singer, conductor and ten-time Grammy Award winner. And if that's not enough, his 1988 hit 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' (yes, we know you know that one!) held the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks solid! Today, Bobby continues to tour, taking his original and varying vocal talents across the USA.

Having two parents both into music, operatic baritone Robert McFerrin for a father and singer Sara Copper, his mother, there's no surprise Bobby has this incredible talent. He often switches between modal and falsetto registers to create a polyphonic effect, where he performs both the melody and the accompaniment of songs. He then makes use of his voice for percussion by using his mouth and tapping on his chest. He is the ultimate one man band.

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
