After three years of international touring with Grammy-award winner Michael Bublé, Naturally 7 has been re-introduced to their U.S. fans in two Honey Nut Cheerios commercials which kicked off on November 24, 2014 with the release of the “Honey of an O” television spot featuring vocals by Naturally 7.

“Naturally 7 is embarking on a new frontier in A cappella music,” stated McKeever. “Partnering with Honey Nut Cheerios gives the U.S. audience an opportunity to appreciate the unique and distinctive sound that has made the group an international sensation.”
The first single from this highly anticipated album is Naturally 7’s interpretation of the Coldplay hit single, “Fix You” which has been heralded as a “beautiful mesmerizing version….which rivaled the original for haunting emotion.” The video premiered on Yahoo! Music and is continuing to receive rave reviews from music enthusiasts. Upon hearing the Naturally 7 version of the song, Coldplay tweeted, “These guys are [email protected] We’re honored that they covered our song.”
In addition to “Fix You,” the group also scored a coup when they were given permission to sample Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on their song “Galileo.” This marks the first time that Queen has granted a sample of their music.
“Hidden in Plain Sight” has already had two top ten singles, “Need You With Me” and “Life Goes On,” on the Billboard Smooth Jazz chart. Grammy award winning crooner Michael Bublé echoed the sentiments of many of their peers saying, “Naturally 7 are one of the greatest most original, talented and scary good bands ever!”
“We are excited about releasing our official U.S. album,” states Roger Thomas, group leader. “We have been traveling the world for the past few years and I guess you could say we have been “Hidden in Plain Sight.” With the release of this project, and our Honey Nut Cheerios commercials, our U.S. fans will have an opportunity to see us up close and in person.”
“Helping Hands for Freedom is honored for the recognition by Naturally 7 and Hidden Beach Experiences. The title of their new CD, “Hidden in Plain Sight,” describes the circumstances for many of our military families. We appreciate their support and the spotlight that this relationship will shine on the children and families of the wounded, fallen or deployed around the world.”
