EAST LANSING, Mich. ? Ten-time Grammy Award winning singer Bobby McFerrin comes to Wharton Center – for the very first time – for what promises to be an incredibly moving night of song! Part of The Doctors Company Variety Series, Bobby McFerrin will perform on Saturday, February 6, 2016, in the Cobb Great Hall. Tickets to see
BOBBY MCFERRIN: BOBBY MEETS MICHIGAN! are available at official ticketing outlets: online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
McFerrin, possibly best known for his hit classic, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” has been hailed throughout his career as an artist of many talents. Using his unique vocal techniques, he sings various styles with an assortment of instruments – and sometimes unaccompanied. In Bobby Meets Michigan!, Bobby will use these unique vocal
techniques alongside local Michigan artists and with participation from the audience.
Bobby Meets Michigan! promises a one-of-a-kind night of improvisation and song. The Bobby Meets... series evolved naturally over decades, as Bobby’s love of surprising new sounds drew him toward onstage meetings with guest artists all over the world. For example, Bobby Meets Indonesia featured a kecak (monkey chant) ensemble, a
Gamelan, and traditional mask dancers; Bobby Meets Shanghai featured a Kuquu opera star, an Erhu player, and a classical ballet dancer; Bobby Meets Ireland featured pipes, recorders, folk dancers, and a harpist; and Bobby Meets Africa in New York featured immigrant master musicians from Mali and Benin. The series has also given him a chance to work with spectacular musicians from Ireland, Turkey, Israel and Russia. You won’t want to miss this very special event!
