EVENT INFORMATION
For decades Bobby McFerrin has broken all the rules. The 10-time Grammy winner has blurred the distinction between pop music and fine art, goofing around barefoot in the world’s finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory, inspiring a whole new generation of a cappella singers and the beatbox movement. His latest album, spirityouall, is a bluesy, feel-good recording, an unexpected move from the music-industry rebel who singlehandedly redefined the role of the human voice with his a cappella hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic, his improvising choir Voicestra, and his legendary solo vocal performances.
ABOUT THE SHOW
The University of Evansville will host musician Bobby McFerrin at the Old National Events Plaza on Tuesday, January 14 at 7:30 p.m. The Don’t Worry, Be Happy singer will perform with members of the UE Department of Music Choral Program as part of the Patricia H. Snyder Concert and Lecture Series. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged, but not required, and is available online at www.evansville.edu/speakers/snyder.cfm.
