Michael Bolton has sold more than 53 million records, released 21 studio albums, won multiple Grammys(r) for Best Male Vocalist and countless other honors, all while selling out arenas worldwide. In 2002, the singer-songwriter earned a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
Bolton has sung with legends like Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, written songs with greats such as Bob Dylan and Lady Gaga, penned hits for a diverse range of artists, including Barbra Streisand and KISS, played guitar with B.B. King and had his music recorded on a track by hip-hop superstar Kanye West (featuring megastar Jay-Z).
Bolton recently appeared in the Emmy-nominated Saturday Night Live Digital Short, "Jack Sparrow," that went on to become a viral sensation racking up nearly 100 million views to date and became the third most viewed video on YouTube in 2011. He was also featured in People Magazine "Sexiest Man Alive" issue several times including the 2012 list.
Of all that he has accomplished, perhaps nothing is more important to Bolton than the foundation he founded in1993, The Michael Bolton Charities, Inc. Based in his home state of Connecticut, the major focus of The MBC is the critical issue of violence against women.
