The ever-surprising vocal virtuoso Bobby McFerrin is excited to present his new group Gimme5 with audiences around the world. From his trailblazing solo a cappella performances to his inspired collaborations with Chick Corea and Yo-Yo Ma, his iconic global No. 1 hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” and his work conducting top-tier orchestras, McFerrin’s calling has always been to connect people through the unlimited possibilities of music. Or, as the Los Angeles Times put it, “Bobby McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants and transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.”



The 10-time Grammy-winner’svocal ensembleGimme5is his latest vehiclefor channelingthe spontaneous adventure and laughter that occurs when folks join together in song—on and off the stage. Gimme5 featuresJoey Blake, Dave Worm, Rhiannon and Judi Vinar, alltrusted veterans of Voicestra, the panoramically gifted 12-member choirthat McFerrin founded in the 1980s. With a telepathic rapport and a love for the unknown, they’ll unitein an improvised program based on McFerrin’s sweeping, soulful vocal language: a wide-open, all-embracing space where art music meets pop, jazz meets classical, lyrics meet pure sound, the avant-garde meets the traditional where all the cultures of the world become one.

Gimme5 is based on Circlesinging, amusical practice and philosophythat McFerrin has been honing since he beganas a solo a cappella performer, assigning vocal parts to his fans and transforming sold-out houses into impromptu choirs. They will invite you to sing along and join in on a spontaneous adventure fueled by jazz, pop, R&B, classical and world music—or, more accurately, out-of-this-world music—all rolled into one.
