Michael Bolton will be in Branson! The two-time Grammy Award-winning crooner continues to tour the world, enchanting hordes of music fans with his passionate, slightly edgy voice, one that’s turned both original songs and classic numbers into instant mega-hits. Bolton topped more than one chart with the heart-wrenching “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You,” a song he co-wrote with Doug James, and with his cover of the Percy Sledge masterpiece, “When a Man Loves a Woman” - both recordings nabbed him a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. He’s also experienced huge success with several other memorable songs, including “Georgia on My Mind,” “When I’m Back on My Feet Again,” “How Can We Be Lovers,” “Time, Love, & Tenderness,” “To Love Somebody,” “Said I Loved You...But I Lied,” “Love Is a Wonderful Thing,” and “Missing You Now,” recorded with another popular creator of romantic music, Kenny G.
In addition to his extraordinary Grammy wins, Michael Bolton has lined his mantel and walls with a nice collection of statues, plaques, awards, acknowledgements, accolades, and so forth...and so on...and so much the envy of many a brilliant balladeer! His more notable nods include American Music Awards for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Album, and Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist. He may be touted most as a singer of pop ballads, but the early years of his career were filled with hard-hitting rock ‘n’ roll, and many significant African-American artists applaud Bolton as a singer of “blue-eyed” soul - it was that genuine appreciation that landed him on stage when Ray Charles was honored at the International Jazz Hall of Fame Awards in the late 90’s - Bolton was invited to sing the classic, “Georgia On My Mind.” And it hasn’t been music alone that brings out the passion in Michael Bolton, he’s sincerely dedicated to social activism. He’s been honored for his humanitarian work on numerous occasions, receiving acknowledgements that include the Martin Luther King Award from the Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.,) the Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations, and with the Frances Preston Lifetime Achievement Award. He also created Michael Bolton Charities, a foundation that advocates on behalf of women and children at risk.
