Bobby McFerrin

Classical Music in April

Bobby McFerrin: You probably recognize Bobby McFerrin and his irrepressible grin from "Don't Worry Be Happy" (and you're probably cringing at the memory of the two baggy neon-hued t-shirts you were wearing at the time). But he's not just an '80s hit - Bobby McFerrin joined the noble ranks of Those Who Alter Music History when his nimble vocal chords blasted through what used to be considered the boundaries of the human voice. Sounding in turn like a saxophone, an operatic soprano, or an avian chorus, Mr. McFerrin often performs alone onstage, singing multiple parts in a capella and providing rhythm with his voice or his body.
