Bobby McFerrin

Biography:Bobby McFerrin (born New York City, March 11, 1950) is a jazz-influenced a cappella vocal performer and conductor. His song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" (featured in the 1988 movie Cocktail starring Tom Cruise) was a #1 U.S. pop hit in 1988. He has also worked in collaboration with instrumental performers including pianist Chick Corea, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and pianist Herbie Hancock. He is known for possessing a large vocal range of four octaves and for his ability to use his voice to create sound effects, like his recreation of a bass, which he achieves by singing while tapping on his chest.

In 1987 he sang the theme tune to The Cosby Show and soon after also provided the music for a Cadburys chocolate commercial.

In 1993 he also sang the Pink Panther theme tune for the movie Son of the Pink Panther.

In addition to his vocal performing career, Mr. McFerrin was appointed in 1994 as creative chair of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.

McFerrin is the subject of a persistent yet wholly unfounded rumour that he has committed suicide. The rumor was so strong that the official Bobby McFerrin FAQ addressed the question.

McFerrin and his hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy" were parodied on "The Simpsons" as "I'm Worried - Need Money".
