Bobby McFerrin to perform at İş Sanat
ISTANBUL- Hürriyet Daily News
Bobby McFerrin is best known for his song ‘Dont Worry, Be Happy.’Ten-time Grammy award winning voice virtuoso Bobby McFerrin will perform a solo concert at İş Sanat March 28.
Best known by many for his song “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” which features no other instruments other than his voice, and which became a global number one hit more than twenty years ago, McFerrin is a true legend.
His four-octave vocal range and capacity for constant invention are on par with those of the greatest improvisational instrumentalists, yet simultaneously the power, sophistication and soulfulness of his singing place him in a class of his own. The palette McFerrin draws from consists of every style of music he’s ever heard, resulting in a genuine cross-cultural cross-breed. It’s jazz, pop, R&B, classical and world music — or, more accurately, out-of-this-world music – all rolled into one, sometimes within the same song.
His stunning rendition of the “Bach prelude/Ave Maria,” his interpretations of Beatles songs, summarize McFerrin’s extraordinary music career. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost 110 to 80 Turkish Liras.
