All Natural

A documentary short on the Acapella vocal band Naturally 7. Just looking at the responses of those who have seen the group live, the reaction is that of amazement! Seeing Naturally 7 live, changes the total perspective of what the live show is about. Every performance is different and changes the viewer for the better. The film is an introspective vision of the 'Vocal Play' sound, which is why Artists like Michael Buble, Quincy Jones, Helen Fischer, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban and John Miles (just to name a few), have shared the stage in that experience. Their art represents ways in which the character of a community is shaped by the imaginative spaces they inhabit. Naturally 7 represents the collaborative joy that comes from working together to produce a play or perform a concert. They infuse life, light, energy and noble purpose into places where others just can't go.
