Too Cool!!

This is just really moving, Bobby McFerrin in concert getting the crowd involved to do Gounod's Ave Maria...



Seeings this makes me want to get the CD he did with Yo Yo Ma called Hush and the one called The Mozart Sessions. That is genuine talent!

I love it !

But I don't understand what he said "if you are jewish.... you can sind" ??? Maria".
Can you tell me what he said ?
Thanks

He said, if you are Jewish you can sing "Oy vey" Maria, lol. It's Yiddish for "Oh no!" and is a stereotypical expression among Jewish people here =)

Beautiful. Though I've never been even remotely Marian, I've always thought that a number of the classical versions of 'Ave Maria" were gorgeous pieces. This performance of it was quite an inspiration on McFerrin's part.

Wow! Watched it four times so far... and going back for another run. :) I hope you don't mind me trawling through your old posts? Your blog and a few others have been a real treasure trove of laughs and thought starters. Thanks!
