Jacob Collier has gone from viral sensation to Grammy Award winner. And now he’s coming to perform to the University of North Texas.
The British musician first won fame in 2012 for his videos in which he turned his one voice into a choir and added elaborate, unique arrangements – performed by himself –to such songs as Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘bout a Thing” and “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
His first album “In My Room” came out in 2016. He won two Grammys in 2017 for Best Instrumental for “The Flintstones” and Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella for “You and I,” his take on the Stevie Wonder classic.
He’s worked with Snarky Puppy, a band that features UNT alumni, as well as Hans Zimmer, Herbie Hancock and Pharrell. He has released several singles from his new project “Djesse.”
