Last week, Bobby McFerrin visited Berklee to speak at several classes, including my Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry class (see my previous article for my information on this new pilot course). I cannot put into words how inspiring it was hearing Bobby share with us his journey as an artist and the obstacles he faced trailblazing a career as an A Capella performer – and that’s not even mentioning hearing him perform! Here are some clips from Bobby’s visit last Friday at Cafe 939’s Red Room.
