Pretty neat philosophy in four words...Don't worry, be happy

Many of you would heard the song "Don't Worry, Be Happy"  by musician Bobby McFerrin.
This track was released in September 1988 went on to reach number one on the Billboard
 Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks. On the UK Singles Chart, the song reached number 2
during its fifth week on the chart. At the 1989 Grammy Awards, "Don't Worry Be Happy" won the awards
 for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

Whats amazing about this song is the fact that its an "Cappella Song" by definition - a cappella song comprises of entirely overdubbed voice parts and other vocal sounds using no instruments at all.Eight tracks were used, each dubbed on top of the other with Bobby's voice. There are no instrumentalists, percussion instruments, or other singers other than Bobby.

To tell you more about this amazing singer,Bobby McFerrin is one of the natural wonders of the music world.
A ten-time Grammy Award winner, he is one of the world's best-known vocal innovators and improvisers,
