Michael Bolton, the multiple Grammy Award-winning Singer, Songwriter
and Social Activist, who has sold more than 53 million albums and

several continents, all while writing and recording for his new album.
Bolton remains committed to humanitarian causes -- advocating for at-risk
women and children for over 20 years through the Michael Bolton Charities
as well as other social and political organizations. Known for his soulful
voice and poignant lyrics, his timeless style, charm and good looks have
also earned him a spot in several “People Magazine’s Sexiest Man” issues,
including 2010’s “Sexiest Man in his 50’s.” Bolton credits his fans with
being “the best in the world” and loves nothing more than delivering the hits
while expanding his repertoire and making new fans globally.

In recognition of his artistic achievements, Michael has received 2
Grammys for Best Pop Male Vocal Performance, 6 American Music
Awards, and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As a songwriter,
he has earned over 24 BMI & ASCAP Awards, including Songwriter of
the Year, 9 Million-Air awards, and the Hitmakers Award from the
Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Internationally renowned, Michael has recorded and performed with
musical icons that have inspired and influenced his own career. He joined
Luciano Pavarotti on stage in a highly praised rendition of “Vesti La
Giubba,” and pays homage to the Italian tenor when performing the aria
“Nessun Dorma” at each of his concerts while on tour. He has sung with
Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras and Renee Fleming and played guitar
with BB King. Bolton earned a Grammy-nomination for “Georgia on my
Mind,” and was chosen to sing the song to Ray Charles when Charles was
inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame. Recently, Michael performed duets
with both Seal and Lara Fabian to standing ovations for a PBS special
airing in March of 2011.

A diverse and prolific songwriter, Michael’s songs have been recorded and
performed by over 100 artists, ranging from country western legend
Conway Twitty to hip hop superstar Kanye West, who along with Jay-Z
and John Legend have sampled his music! Other greats who have

Someone”), and Kenny G (“By the Time this Night is Over’). Bolton has
collaborated with some of the greatest songwriters of our time, Diane
Warren, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, John “Mutt” Lange, Lady
Gaga and Ne-Yo, among others. He is one of the very few artists who
have co-written with the legendary Bob Dylan, resulting in the mega hit,
“Steel Bars”.

Michael has always balanced a love for writing new songs with a passion
for covering the classics. On his breakthrough album “The Hunger,” Bolton
authored the #1 single “That’s What Love is All About” and sang his chart
topping version of Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) the Dock of the Bay”, which
was a hit on 4 radio formats. That album was certified double Platinum and
shipped 4 million copies worldwide.

To date, Michael has seen 8 studio albums rank in the Top Ten, with 9 #1
singles. Bolton’s true signature success was seized with the 6x platinum
album “Soul Provider”, selling more than 12 million copies world-wide, and
showcasing several chart-toppers including the #1 hit single “How Am I
Supposed to Live Without You,” which earned Michael his first Grammy.
This pivotal album also includes the hit singles “When I’m Back on My
Feet” Again,” “How Can We Be Lovers,” and “Soul Provider.”

Soon after, Bolton released the #1 album “Time, Love & Tenderness”,
which has sold over 16 million copies world-wide, and features his Grammy
Award-winning vocal performance of the #1 blockbuster hit “When A Man
Loves a Woman.” This album also produced the hit singles: “Love Is a
Wonderful Thing,” “Time, Love and Tenderness” and “Missing You Now,”
as well as “Steel Bars.”

Bolton followed this up with a collection of soulful classics on "Timeless,"
delivering the hit singles “To Love Some Somebody” and “Reach Out I’ll Be
There.” “Timeless” sold over 7 million copies worldwide!

From his next album ” “The One Thing” came Michael’s massive single
“Said I Loved You…But I Lied,” which spent 12 weeks at #1 on the AC
charts and earned him another Grammy-nomination.

Michael has always been attracted to a wide array of musical categories,
from Sinatra favorites ("Bolton Swings Sinatra"), to classical arias ("My
Secret Passion"), which achieved #1 on the classical charts for a record
breaking 6 weeks.

Michael’s songs and performances have been featured in numerous
television and film soundtracks, including the Oscar-nominated theme song
“Go the Distance” from Walt Disney’s blockbuster animated film “Hercules”.
He also executive produced the documentary “Terror at Home” addressing
Domestic Violence in America, and was Emmy-nominated for writing the
title song “Tears of The Angels”.

For his dedication to social activism, Michael has been honored with
several Humanitarian awards – including the Martin Luther King Award
granted by the Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.), the Lewis Hine
Award from The National Child Labor Committee, and the Ellis Island
Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations, and the
Frances Preston Lifetime Achievement Award. Michael is especially proud
of the initiatives carried out by his own foundation, the Michael Bolton
Charities, which strives to end the scourge of violence against women and
children in America.
