Ten-time Grammy Award winner Bobby McFerrin's extraordinary voice and charismatic stage presence takes a new path. With a release scheduled for April, SpiritYouAll is a soulful evocation of the American spiritual. Flavours of blues, soul and gospel music inhabit a joyous new programme that also features a band steeped in an American roots tradition.

With this new album, Bobby celebrates the human spirit with a heartfelt re-imagining of an American tradition. Beloved songs like 'He's Got the Whole World In His Hands' and 'Every Time I Feel The Spirit' and original tunes explore Bobby's everyday search for grace, wisdom, and freedom.

SpiritYouAll embraces Bobby's folk, rock, and blues influences without abandoning his fearless improvisational approach or his never-ending exploration of the human voice. He moves seamlessly between lyrics and wordless lines, trading phrases with his band, inviting the audience to sing along.
