     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has invited American a cappella group Naturally 7 to perform in the Great Music 2023 in late September. The group will present their new songs created for this Hong Kong tour using their “vocal play” technique, which will surprise music lovers in the city with their wonderful and not-to-be-missed performance.

     Over the years, Naturally 7 has been taking the world by storm with their unique form of “vocal play”. The group not only sings traditionally but also turns the human voice into drum set, guitar, harmonica, trombone and even the DJ scratching. Adopting styles like rap and R&B, the group transforms the human voice into an ensemble. In the concert, apart from presenting classics like “Fix You” and film songs, the group will also present new works to offer the audiences an auditory feast of the human voice.

     Naturally 7 was founded by brothers Roger and Warren Thomas in 1999, and formed with five other singers at the brothers’ invitation. The group won Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, a significant award in the a cappella world. The group shared the stage and performed with numerous pop artists and groups, including Michael Bublé and Coldplay. It has been invited to perform at some of the biggest shows in the world, such as the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and the Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony in 2017. The group has put on more than 1 000 shows across five continents in over 30 countries and regions.
