Roy Thomson Hall, the home to Toronto Symphony Orchestra, has seen many great legends and talents performing on it's stellar stage. On Saturday, it hosted Bobby Mcferrin, the man whose instrument is his voice and that's all he's ever needed. From his 1988 hit song "Don't worry, Be Happy" to his ten Grammy Awards and collaborations with the likes of Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and Yo-Yo Ma, Bobby Mcferrin has been one of the heavy weights of music since the 70's.

He then performed improvised a song with Cadence and then was off the stage to prepare for the night's performance, Bobby Meets Toronto, including himself, along with the Torontonian musicians Cadence quartet, George Sawa on Arabic Instruments, Muthadi Thomas on West African Drums, Kyle Brenders on Saxophone, and the dance Michael Caldwell.
