INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR MICHAEL BOLTON CELEBRATES HIS 50TH YEAR IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY WITH A SYMPHONY OF HITS
COLLECTION OF GREATEST HITS NEWLY ARRANGED AND RECORDED WITH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 8
SINGER ALSO RELEASES SOULFUL FRAGRANCE COLLECTION: TIME, LOVE & TENDERNESS
Toronto, ON – January 3, 2019 – Multi-Grammy Award-winning, international superstar, Michael Bolton, is set to release A Symphony of Hits, via Entertainment One on February 8, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The collection celebrates the music legend’s 50th year in the entertainment industry, and features his greatest hits newly arranged and recorded at All Saints College Performing Arts Centre in Perth, Australia with the West Australian Full Harmonic Orchestra. Fans can pre-order the album now, here.
"Over the years I have had the honour to collaborate with so many of my musical heroes and I’ve had the pleasure of delving into diverse musical genres,” says Bolton. "To celebrate my 50th year in entertainment, I’ve selected a collection of songs that really marked the chapters in my career and it has been my dream to bring them to life with a symphony orchestra. As a little blue collar boy from Connecticut, I can honestly say, that if you put your gift to work and commit fully, that’s when dreams come true!"
This iconic collection of hits follows the career of the singer/songwriter’s life, spanning from his first record deal at age 16, to his first Grammy eighteen years later. Each song reveals a page in his coming of age story, performing with his childhood inspirations Ray Charles and Percy Sledge, and working with musical legends Bob Dylan and Luciano Pavarotti to perfect his craft of songwriting and singing.
These songs and stories will be performed live from the Au-Rene Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on Saturday February 2nd, 2019. This one night only special fundraising event will bring the familiar favorites to new heights with a lush 60-piece symphony orchestra and gospel choir. Proceeds benefit the Campaign for Parker Playhouse and The Michael Bolton Charities, commemorating its 25th year of advocating on behalf of women and children at risk.
Alongside the new album, Bolton will also release Time, Love & Tenderness, a three-piece fragrance collection capturing the essence of the eponymous album and hit single. The unique package is designed to be both soulful and romantic, and is available for Pre-Order at: https://michaelbolton.com/shop/
A Symphony of Hits, the Time, Love & Tenderness fragrance collection, and The Broward Center special event are the result of a unique collaboration between Michael and Great HealthWorks, a leading health and wellness company that supports the healing power of music.
