A multi-Grammy award-winning, international superstar who has sold more than 53 million albums and singles worldwide, Bolton began his iconic career at the age of 16. He took home his first Grammy 18 years later, for ‘Best Pop Vocal Performance Make’ for the single, How Am I Supposed To Love you. That year, he made his debut on the Grammy stage performing the song with Kenny G. Bolton’s powerful vocals have since graced some of the biggest songs and albums of our time, including Soul Provider, which sold more than 12.5 million copies worldwide. The disc showcased several chart-toppers, including the #1 hit single, How Am I Supposed to Live Without You, which earned him a Grammy Award.

His most recent album, A Symphony of Hits, chronicles his 50-year legacy in the music industry. The album was recorded in Australia with the West Australian Full Harmonic Orchestra. Bolton has as his list of accomplishments two Grammy Awards, six 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.


This is Hammond’s third time performing at Groovin’ In The Park.
