About Michael BoltonREG was proud to book Michael Bolton for the Pearl River Resort in Mississippi.
The recipe for a classic record is simple. Start with a brilliant song, rife with passion and feeling. Add a unique and moving voice, potent enough to carry its emotional payload directly to the listener's heart and soul and presto! instant classic. Sounds easy, doesn't it? If that's all there is to it, why isn't everyone doing it? Well, not everyone is Michael Bolton.
Michael Bolton knows classic records. He should — he's recorded and written enough of them. On a musical landscape increasingly populated by here-today/gone-today fluff, he is that rare phenomenon: the genuine item.
Initially enjoying success as a songwriter, Bolton seemingly burst onto the scene as the electrifying and compelling performer the world has come to know and love. Bolton has twice been honored with a Grammy for Best Male Vocalist, winning for his stunning rendition of "When a Man Loves a Woman," and the classic, "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?" which Michael also wrote. He has collected six American Music Awards, including three for Favorite Male Artist (Pop) and countless BMI Broadcast Awards honoring the millions of times his hits have traveled radio's airwaves.
Michael has moved audiences the world over, bringing down the house everywhere from the Apollo Theatre to the White House. He has shared a stage with Placido Domingo and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and added opera to his already considerable repertoire following performances with Luciano Pavarotti in Italy. Other unforgettable performances include an Essence Awards duet with living legend B.B. King, whom Michael describes as "one of the nicest artists I've ever met," and a VH-1 televised rendition of "When a Man Loves a Woman" alongside surprise guest Percy Sledge, the song's originator.
Few musicians have touched so many people's lives in so many ways. Very few have stood at such grand heights as a singer, a writer, a performer. Somehow, to the continuing delight of admirers the world over, Michael Bolton manages to make it look like a breeze.
