Arts Commons Presents:
Bobby McFerrin & Gimme5: Circlesongs

CALGARY – The father of beatbox, the soul behind Don’t Worry, Be Happy, and a ten-time Grammy Award winner, Bobby McFerrin will take you on a life-changing musical adventure when he performs at the Jack Singer Concert Hall on February 19 as part of our TD Jazz series.

McFerrin’s exhilarating vocal vocabulary enlists the audience to help him create acapella melodies, using call and response, invented language and even funny noises. The entire show is an exercise in pure joy.

For this particular performance, McFerrin has enlisted the vocal talents of Calgary-based youth ensemble CADME Singers, who have been personally selected for just this occasion to provide back up to McFerrin and Gimme5.

Gimme5 is made up of members from McFerrin’s trusted Voicestra, who have been performing with him for years.

"Bobby McFerrin's greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants," says the Los Angeles Times, "transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space."
