For over half my life, I've been inspired by Bobby McFerrin. My drive to be better, to push myself, and to always be working on something interesting comes from what I've learned from listening to his recordings and watching everything "Bobby-related" on the internet that I can find. This is a video to say thank you and tell Mr. McFerrin and the whole world what an impact his music and teaching have had on me. Much thanks and love. Aimee
