Five-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and musician, Christopher Cross, will bring his impressive and extensive song catalogue to the F.M. Kirby Center on Wednesday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m.
Christopher Cross burst onto the scene and made musical history in 1980 when his self-titled debut album earned him five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time ever—the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New Artist.
In addition to “Sailing,” Cross’ debut album also included three other Billboard Hot 100 Top 20 hits: “Ride Like the Wind,” “Never Be the Same,” and “Say You’ll Be Mine.”
Cross’ second studio album, Another Page, included his biggest and most recognizable hit – “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do).” Written as the main theme for the 1981 film Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli, the song spent three weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart and earned Cross an Academy Award for Best Song and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
Since then, Cross has released 12 more studio albums, including 2013’s live album A Night in Paris, and 2014’s Secret Ladder.
