*picking jaw up off the floor* Genius! The keyboard thing was way cool; I want him to be my music teacher :)

Wow, he handles the crowd so well. You can see the buzz he gets out of performing. Truly amazing. I'd give anything to be there.

McFerrin's Wizard of Oz medley is very impressive too. He runs through the entire movie in under ten minutes.

Astoundingly, though, the whole thing hasn't made it's way online yet, but there is a 33 second clip of it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inoSeWpT6AI).

Here's another. Mcferrin is amazing. What I would give to have that voice.

There is also a video of him singing "Hush Little Baby" with yo-yo ma playing cello and also an interview with yo-yo ma on Bobby McFerrin somewhere on youtube

Thank you for posting this! I will officially stop confusing Bobby McFerrin with Bobby Darin.
Agreed - amazing musical talent; not likely to be portrayed by Kevin Spacey in the near future.

His site is really cool also, he has an area were you can remix his songs:
