Celebrating his 50th Year in the entertainment industry, Michael Bolton is one of music’s most successful and loved performers who has sold more than 65 million records around the world with hits he’s penned like – “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You”, “How Can We Be Lovers”, “Said I Love You.. But I Lied”, “Soul Provider” and many more. He has earned Grammy nods for renditions of classics like “When A Man Loves A Woman”, “Georgia On My Mind”, and “Dock Of The Bay,” which topped charts across the world and is still heard on radio today. With 9 #1 singles, Michael has seen 9 studio albums rank in the Top Ten.
Michael’s most recent release A SYMPHONY OF HITS, a #1 album on the Billboard Classical Chart, is a collection of his favorite Greatest Hits newly arranged and recorded with a full symphony orchestra.
Bolton has written with some of the greatest and most diverse talent of our time, including Bob Dylan, Paul Stanley, Lady Gaga, Diane Warren, and David Foster. Bolton’s songs have been recorded by the likes of KISS, Kanye West, Jay Z, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Marc Anthony. Continuing to tour the world each year, Michael has performed with legacies such as Luciano Pavarotti, Jose Carreras, Renee Fleming and BB King.
Michael became a viral sensation in The Lonely Island’s Emmy nominated video, “Captain Jack Sparrow” that launched on Saturday Night Live and has racked up over 200 million views on YouTube. Bolton’s comedic appearances span several episodes of CBS’s hit series Two and a half Men, the hit Fox network show Glee, ABC’s hit comedy Fresh off the Boat, HBO’s hit series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and has ongoing campaigns with American Greetings. He executive produced and starred in the Netflix show Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Special which has been one of the network’s most popular comedies to date. Most recently, Michael had a featured cameo in the Showtime hit series Billions.
Bolton remains committed to humanitarian causes, especially through the Michael Bolton Charities, now in its 25th year advocating on behalf of women and children at risk.
