August 24, 2008 more You Tube versions of SUNNY

Here's an interesting Bobby hebb video on You Tube
(not officially from Bobby, from a fan's site)

Here's James Brown studio version


Stevie wonder studio version
(as of 1-19-09 this version of "Sunny" by Stevie Wonder has disappeared.
Copyright claims by UniMusic or Wonder may have led to its removal)

Stevie Wonder recorded this on STEVIE WONDER LIVE as well as a studio version on
his huge album FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE. There are two versions by Stevie Wonder,
one by Marvin Gaye, one by Mary Wells, a couple by The Four Tops - a studio version
as well as a practice for a TV show that we have to recover from You Tube. Motown related
versions by Willie Mitchell (from Al Green's band), Wilson Pickett would make for a nice
Motown Does Sunny package.

The You Tube versions of SUNNY -

MELBA MOORE's rendition of "SUNNY" This long lost version, never put on CD, is now on You Tube!

Melba sang backing vocals on Bobby Hebb's hit version.

Also just up, Bobby Hebb and jazz artist Denny Jiosa performing live on
July 12, 2008 in Tennessee. Jiosa has his studio rendition as the soundtrack
with photos from the live event on You Tube

On Wednesday, July 9, 2008, at 8 PM E.S.T., Bobby Hebb and Joe Viglione listened to a variety of different performances of "Sunny" found on YouTube!

Bobby Hebb appreciates each and every musician who took the time to express themselves utilizing his lyrics and chord changes and melody.

He is very gratified to see so many people performing the song long after Mieko Hirota and Dave Pike released their versions in 1965

For The Set, here is, Dave Pike's version of Sunny. ... dave pike sunny atlantic 1966 vibes soul

and Bobby's own rendition topped the charts in 1966. Bobby toured with The Beatles that year - I've actually heard an audio tape of a Canadian concert and when Bobby performed "Sunny" the response was as loud as the response the Beatles got.

Bobby performs in Watertown, Tennessee on July 12th 2008 with Denny Jiosa.
He will be performing at BillboardLive in Osaka Japan and BillboardLive in
Tokjo Japan sometime this year.

Here's his biography on

Here are the versions of "Sunny" that we listened to tonight, July 9, 2008

El no quiere cantar en Ingles, porq no es un buen mercado!! A q me refiero, a que el mercado de USA es super chafa. Si no vean q cantante bueno realmente hay hoy dia!!!ES PURO MARKETING y si no me creen preguntenle a Ricky Martin y a Shakira, cayendo a lo mas bajo es cuestion de letrass, ritmos e identidad. No hay nada como el mercado de Latinoamerica, Europa y Asia. Por eso Luis Miguel se ha mantenido en la cima, porq se dio cuenta de lo importante de cantar con inteligencia y no por dinero.
