Fresh from a world tour with Michael Bublé, vocal play group Naturally 7 is returning to Australia with World Vision for seven incredible shows starting 29 August in Sydney.
The group combines elements of R&B, pop, soul and beatboxing, using only their voices as instruments in an a cappella experience like you have never heard before; a full band sound with drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, harmonica, horns and breathtaking harmonies with nothing but the organic qualities of the human voice.
The band’s impressive credentials also include recording with Quincy Jones and Ludacris, appearing on Ellen and The View, achieving three top 10 US AC singles and hitting 20+ million YouTube views worldwide.
Naturally 7 has a global following with signature tunes including ‘In the Air Tonight’ and their stunning version of Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ making it one of the world’s most popular vocal groups, carrying the spirit of artists like Boyz II Men, Jodeci, OutKast, The Four Tops and Bobby McFerrin.
As World Vision artist partners, Naturally 7 will first travel to Cambodia to visit projects that address the root causes of poverty for local children, their families and communities. The band will visit schools to engage children in music; learn about a new project that uses phonics to improve literacy rates in schools; and see how children are learning about improved nutrition, water and sanitation, so they can then teach their own families and communities.
“We are looking forward to touring our favorite continent away from home!” said Naturally 7’s Roger Thomas. “It’s going to be an honor to do it this time with World Vision, an organization for which we have so much admiration. And of course the best part… we can’t wait to see our Aussie fans!”
“We are so excited to be heading back to Australia to bring our new show to fans Down Under,” said Naturally 7’s front man Roger Thomas. “We had such a great time in 2014 and jumped at the chance when this amazing opportunity came up to go back. Being able to travel to Cambodia on the way to see the difference World Vision is making on the ground there is such a privilege and gives the trip even more meaning for us.”
World Vision’s Vision Artists Manager Michael Bianchi said Naturally 7 embodied the ideal artist partner for World Vision and their tours.
“The artists of Naturally 7 demand excellence from themselves on and off stage,” Mr Bianchi said. “They are able to communicate their passion for music and for empowering the poor in a way that inspires and challenges their audiences to join them in affecting change. Australians gave Naturally 7 a very warm welcome on their last tour. We know the group will deliver even more impressive performances this year, exceeding the expectations of loyal and new fans alike.”
