This is not your average road trip – Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers sing a cover of Bobby McFerrin’s classic “Don’t Worry Be Happy” while driving around in their car. No instruments or background music were used in the making of this video. The band creates a cover of this happy song with only their voices, snapping their fingers, tapping their chests and guitar cases to keep the beat.
The song “Don’t Worry Be Happy” was written by Bobby McFerrin and was released in 1988. The song was written for a cappella groups; groups of singers who wove together a song with only their voices, not relying on musical instruments or pre-recorded music to add bulk to their song. “Don’t Worry Be Happy” was the first a cappella song to become so popular and has remained a classic that anyone can sing along to.
