Bobby Hill achieved worldwide acclaim in June of 2015 when he was asked to deliver an impromptu a cappella vocal performance for Pope Francis at The Festival of Families during the Holy Father’s visit to the United States.

Since that event, Bobby, who was a member of the Keystone State Boy’s Choir, has been in demand both locally and internationally and has just released a Christmas CD which he recorded in Prague with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.

The Cantata is a Christmas classic that will feature solos by Madree Musson, Michael Scott and Mr. David Darrell.

Their presentation will be augmented by the performance by Bobby Hill who will join a line-up of some of Bermuda’s most outstanding artists such as Joy Barnum, Simona Mills-Pitcher, Lloyd Holder, Lamont Robinson, and the young saxophonist-Aaron Spence to round out an inspirational evening of Christmas music.
