Bobby McFerrin: Rule Breaker / Today Online

Bookmark and Share

Anybody who has seen or heard Bobby McFerrin's performances - even if it's just from watching a YouTube video - will not forget just how wonderfully comfortable the legendary performer appears to be on stage. Often clad just in jeans and baggy shirts, the 10-time Grammy winner has spent decades wowing audiences with his vocal talent.

The 64-year-old, who is best known for his 1988 a cappella hit, Don't Worry, Be Happy, as well as his spontaneous, free-wheeling musical style, has worked with some of music's biggest names - including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, jazz keyboardist Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. But it's his improvisation that will make you sit up and take notice.
