Don’t Worry, Be True to You | Madison McFerrin

Madison McFerrin is an independent singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY, who’s lit up the world with her distinctively soulful voice and arrangements. Raised in music by her father, legendary vocalist Bobby McFerrin, Madison knew she was going to be a singer from the age of 5 and was on her path, learning, performing, finding her own unique voice and building her career.

But after a very public national anthem performance went sideways, she found herself facing an onslaught of viral, online hate from thousands of anonymous critics as well as some of the biggest names in music. She had to decide exactly how she wanted to keep sharing her gift with the world. Rather than hiding, she took the critics on by releasing powerful new a capella tracks that wowed listeners, turned the tide, and set her off on a new musical direction. She is currently building on her momentum, pairing her timeless voice with modern production on her new project, You + I, which drops November 5 and quickly had its lead single “TRY” rack up 560K+ views in her debut COLORS session. Madison McFerrin will be on tour soon, so be sure to check out her latest album, and maybe even see her at a show near you.
