I haven enjoyed Bobby McFerrin for many years and since my children were little I've played his music in our house and danced and sang along. My children laugh and tell me I'm silly. I listened to the unedited interview Ms Tippet did with Mr McFerrin and was so moved by the many beautiful layers of the conversation that I then listened to the edited version as well - (also wanting to hear the music!)
It was such an amazing experience that I offered my 8yr old son a listen to the edited version. He sat rapt listening to the ENTIRE hour. We discussed various aspects of the interview and what was discussed. He really enjoyed the whole interview, "especially the music" he said with glowing eyes.
Thank you Ms Tippet for your amazing and wonderful show but mostly for your unequaled ability to humanize and to touch the soul.
Blessing - Melissa Mead
