You absolutely rocked on Fallan last night… wow. I haven’t gotten into the groove like that in a long time, just happened to flip to the channel too! I was freestylin with you and then Jimmy joined up, I would have whooped his ass thought on being able to play off you on the mike there, heh
Ever since I heard your song Don’t Worry Be Happy (back when I was a KID) I’ve never felt stressed! SERIOUSLY everyone should live by that song!
Hello Mr. McFerrin, I just read a great piece on you, your music and your Dad’s music from the Wall Street Journal. I would love to own a couple of your Dad’s famous albums, “Deep River” and the “Porgy & Bess” soundtrack. Is there a possibility of these being reissued as cd’s or mp3′s for sale? I have listened to some of the songs on you tube and he had a marvelous voice!
I like your music, I like your spirit.
Thanks for sharing it with us.
Is there any chance of “The Wizard Of Oz On Ice” soundtrack being re-released on CD as a mainstream release? Thank you. -Paul.
Hello Mr. McFerrin,
You and I have something in common….we are both Cathedral High School graduates. I wish to invite you to come back and say hello to your fellow Phantom brothers and allow us to honor you for all that you have accomplished. You are an inspiration and allowing us to introduce you to our student body would inspire a whole new generation of Phantoms who wish to pursue a life in music.
I know you are a busy man, but if you have some time please stop by to say “hello”. You may also reach me via my email.
Respectfully written by a proud 1985 Cathedral High School grad.
Such a joy to see you are even more amazing than ever! I have always believed there is power in song, but not just the song of one, but the song of many. It moves out and encompasses the area with it’s magic and love. We need more of these events, more often, and in as many places as possible.
Sure would love to be able to see you in the Seattle or Pacific Northwest area sometime. This area could use a shot of magic like you can help generate. Thank you for being your awesome self.
Dear Bobby McFerrin,
I am fascinated by your creative work and spirit. I love the way you broke down and found your own voice and continuously keep breaking down boundaries .
I am a professional dancer and choreographer who I think have found a style of moving but have not quite yet found my own voice in choreography. I see it all in my mind but the methods/processes are not there yet.
I was interested in hearing that for 2 years you did not listened to any singer, so you wouldn’t get influenced by them. During that time apart from exploring your voice did you go to singing classes, read books or anything else? I am thinking about doing something similar as I get influenced by choreographers I like. Perhaps your idea of not watching any choreography for 2 years would be good. What do you think?
Dear Mr. McFerrin,
For the first time in my life (I’m soon to be 69) I bought tickets and went to a concert… yours! at the Grand Sierra in Reno NV in April. I was wonderfully surprised to discover that you like to sing about God, His Word, the Holy Spirit and Jesus! I would very much like to hear your father’s album, Deep River. Do you have any plans to make it accessible through a CD?
I really enjoyed reading John Jurgensen’s review about you and SpiritYouAll in last Friday’s WSJ (May 10), and was particularly interested in all the study and work your father did with Hall Johnson to learn how to sing these precious songs and what they meant. As you know, your father’s album is unavailable now, at least through Amazon. If you could possibly help me figure out a way to hear them I would deeply appreciate it.
Thank you so much.
