(...as strong a group of musicians on one stage as is possible)


According to Allmusic.com, the song has been recorded by various artists or released in separate format at least 797 times. And I’m sure there are others.

I love Bobby McFerren. Have you heard his CD with YoYo Ma?

I have, Pris. McFerrin has an amazing voice. Thanks for the listen.
