Bobby McFerrin: A Simple Thought Came Into My Head: Why Don’t You Sing?


Bobby McFerrin

“I was in a quiet moment when a simple thought just came into my head: ‘Why don’t you sing? It was as simple as that, but it must have had some force behind it because I acted on it immediately. I wasted no time. That very day I called up the Salt Lake Hilton and made an appointment for an audition. I auditioned the next day and I got it.”
