Celebrating more than 50 years of contributions to the entertainment industry, Michael has seen 9 studio albums rank in the Top Ten, with 9 #1 singles. Bolton reveals his timeless relevance with a collection of freshly written songs in his newest album Spark of Light, featuring the single “Beautiful World” which debuted on NBC’s American Song Contest. His previous album A SYMPHONY OF HITS, which hit #1 on the Billboard Classical Chart, is a selection of his favorite Greatest Hits newly arranged and recorded with a full symphony orchestra.
In recognition of his artistic achievements, Michael won 2 Grammys for Best Pop Male Vocal Performance (nominated four times), 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 collaborated with musical icons that have inspired his own career, such as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Renee Fleming, BB King, Bob Dylan and — perhaps his greatest influence — Ray Charles.
Michael has written hit singles impacting the careers of artists such as Laura Branigan (“How Am I Supposed to Live Without You”), KISS (“Forever”), Barbra Streisand (“We’re Not Making Love Anymore”), Cher (“I Found Someone”), and Kenny G (“By the Time this Night is Over”).
Bolton’s signature success was seized with the 12x platinum album Soul Provider, showcasing chart-toppers like 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 “How Can We Be Lovers,” “Soul Provider,” and the Grammy-nominated “Georgia on My Mind.”
The next #1 album Time, Love & Tenderness, sold over 16 million copies world-wide and features his Grammy Award-winning vocal performance of the blockbuster hit “When A Man Loves a Woman.”
Michael’s songs have been featured in film soundtracks, including the Oscar-nominated theme song “Go the Distance” from Walt Disney’s blockbuster animation Hercules and the title song for the Russell Crowe film Fathers & Daughters. Relevant to multiple generations, his songs are frequently heard on Idol, The Voice, Got Talent and X-Factor all around the world.
Bolton 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 a quarter billion views on YouTube. His TV cameos span hit shows such as Two and a Half Men, Glee, Fresh off the Boat, Last Week Tonight and Billions.
Known for his soulful voice and poignant lyrics, his timeless charm and good looks have also earned him a spot in several “People Magazine’s Sexiest Man” issues, including “Sexiest Man Alive.”
As an executive producer, he co-created and starred in the original Netflix show Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Special, as well as The Celebrity Dating Game, ABC’s musical spin on the beloved dating gameshow, ranking #1 in its primetime slot.
Michael is especially proud of the initiatives carried out by his own foundation, The Michael Bolton Charities, which has been advocating on behalf of women and children at risk for more than 25 years.
In his autobiography, “The Soul of it All,” Bolton states he is just teeing off on the back nine of his career.
In July of 2023, Michael released his first ever album of all original co-written songs, Spark of Light. Spark of Light is buoyant and positive-minded, grounded in classic songcraft and elevated by contemporary sonics and sensibilities reflecting Bolton’s collaborations with a cadre of cutting-edge young creatives. “Really, Spark of Light is everything it comes in contact with — positive energy, hopefulness, happiness,” Bolton explains. “It’s kind of a wide array of events that brought all these different characters and elements together.” Stream Spark of Light HERE.
