Okay, some younger people might think that Moon River is corny and ‘elevator music’. I’m old enough to remember this as the theme song for Andy Williams and to also remember Andy Williams performances. I have no doubt that I could find and share Andy Williams singing this song.
Instead, I selected the rendition by Voctave to share. There is a reason for this. Voctave is an A Capella group. This entire song is done here without any musical instrument except the human voice. The only thing that I can think of that this rendition is lacking is a beat-boxer for percussion. However, even that isn’t necessary since this group is entirely perfectly synched.
I’ve listened to this song played by Boston Pops and other large, well-known philharmonic orchestras. It is my firm belief that as beautiful as those versions of this song were, they don’t approach the beauty of this version by Voctave.
In the Bible, we were told to “Make a joyful sound”. This is certainly that.
