Written by Carole Bayer Sager with melody by David Foster. Performed by Josh Groban.
What a voice, and amen. Thanks, Stella.
Love to hear what Bobby McFerrin could do with this song.
Bobby Sr. would nail it, since he was a rare black opera singer.
When I listen to it, I wonder what I could do with it, too.
Taylor McFerrin. Bobby’s eldest son. Best with headphones.
Bobby’s (his son, of course) latest album goes back to his daddy’s roots, bigly.
Bobby McFerrin got back to Jesus, after a stint with pop culture, and is now perhaps the most respected male vocalist alive. Certainly has honorary degrees from nearly every school of music in the world.
He does a couple of his pop’s songs from above in this, his latest from Spirityouall (2013 — come on, Bobby, it’s been four years already!) He’s overdue for a new one, and I cannot imagine where he goes next, musically. Better every iteration. And his son is also similarly musically inclined. They are our generation’s Bach dynasty.
