More than a tightly orchestrated collection of a cappella singers, Naturally 7 has coined the phrase “vocal play,” as they transform their voices into actual human instruments, effortlessly producing music of any genre.
Their vocal choreography is so perfectly interwoven that they compelled the musical maestro himself, Quincy Jones, to declare them, “the best a cappella group in the world!” They have sung to standing ovations throughout the world and shared the stage with Herbie Hancock, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, ColdPlay, Lionel Richie, and Stevie Wonder, and have also traveled to 25 countries during three world tours with Michael Bublé.
For the members of Naturally 7 (“Ricky” Lee Ricardo Cort, Rod Eldridge, Kelvin “Kelz” Mitchell, Sean Simmonds, Dwight Stewart, Roger Thomas, and Warren Thomas,) it’s a privilege to do what they love and bring such joy to the hearts of their fans each and every night.
