“AGT”: Biko’s Manna’s Joyful Cover Of “Don’t Worry Be Happy” Will Make Your Day


A sibling trio called Biko’s Manna sang the most joyful version of Don’t Worry Be Happy for the AGT auditions, and it will leave you smiling all day.

The South African group, which includes Biko, 16; Manna, 13; and Mfundo, 8, has already enjoyed a few doses of fame during their careers. After making waves on TikTok and YouTube, they were invited to sing on The Jennifer Hudson Show. They’ve also toured the U.S. and performed their hit covers at music fests and more.

But the siblings want to move even further into their musical passions. So they flew across the world so the world could see them on the America’s Got Talent stage—and hopefully take home the Season 19 cash prize. 

The trio warmed the audience members’ hearts as they performed Bobby Mcferrin’s hit with “spot-on” perfection. Biko sang the lead vocals while Manna played guitar and sang backup, and Mfundo provided the percussion and more backup vocals.

The crowd and judges sang and clapped along until Biko’s Manna finished and earned a standing ovation.

“The sun just came up,” said Heidi Klum.

Howie Mandel went on a limb and said that even though it’s early in the season, he thinks “there’s a good chance” the band could win the $1 million prize.

Sophia gushed over how much happiness the group radiated and said it was clear how much the siblings loved each other, which made their performance even more charming. And Simon Cowell said the trio had a “natural chemistry” that made their act a truly heartwarming experience.

Keep up with Biko’s Manna as they compete with this year’s tough competition on AGT Tuesdays on NBC at 8 PM ET.
