Naturally 7, “The Human Instruments,” bring their popular show to Hoover Auditorium Saturday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m.
Naturally 7 is the sound of a full band created by the human voice. They were the 2019 Winner, Best Group, on CBS’ TV series “World’s Best.”
Certain experiences burn themselves in your memory from the very first encounter. The jaw-dropping audio pyrotechnics that Naturally 7 put on display every night belong in that category. “A capella group” so vastly underplays what they create onstage that they had to coin a phrase — “Vocal Play” — to more accurately depict what they do.
Naturally 7 is more than a tightly orchestrated collection of great singers, including “Ricky” Lee Ricardo Cort, Rod Eldridge, Kelvin “Kelz” Mitchell, Sean Simmonds, Dwight Stewart, Roger Thomas and Warren Thomas. They transform their voices into actual human instruments, effortlessly producing music of any genre.
Their vocal choreography is so perfectly interwoven that they compelled legendary producer and 28-time Grammy winner, Quincy Jones, to declare that “Naturally 7 is the future of vocal music.”
Their sonic mastery was on full display in a series of unforgettable performances on “The World’s Best.” Hosted by comedian James Corden, Naturally 7 reigned supreme and cemented their singular status among the musical elite. The group’s career includes three world tours with Michael Bublé, shared billing with Coldplay and the spotlight in a pair of Cheerios’ commercials.
Naturally7 has shared the stage with numerous icons, including Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Quincy Jones, Sarah Connor, Lionel Richie, Ludacris, The Roots and more.
With the latest release of Naturally 7’s 11th studio album, 20/20, which celebrates their 20th anniversary in the music industry, the group comes full circle. For the members, it’s a privilege to do what they love and bring so much joy to their fans in every show. It’s exactly what you would expect. When something is pure magic, it’s destined to withstand the test of time.
