Music icon Christopher Cross to perform at the Clarion on Dec. 4

Mon Nov 23, 2015

Music icon and five-time, Grammy-winning artist Christopher Cross is coming to The Clarion at Brazosport College.

With hits such as “Sailing,” “Ride Like the Wind” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” Cross’s music is known for its blend of sensitivity and unique artistry.

Cross will take the Clarion stage at 7:30 p.m. on December 4.

In 1981, his self-titled debut album, featuring lead single “Ride Like the Wind,” and the massively successful second single, “Sailing,” made Cross a superstar, winning an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammy Awards. 

In the wake of two more Top 20 hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You'll Be Mine,” he soon scored a second No. 1, as well as an Academy Award, with “Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen for the smash Dudley Moore film “Arthur.”

Cross’s much-anticipated second album “Another Page” was released in 1983 and produced the hits “All Right,” “No Time for Talk,” and a Top 10 entry for “Think of Laura.”

He charted eight songs into the Billboard Top 40 charts between 1980 and 1983.

Four years, two albums, eight hit singles, several world tours, five Grammys and one Oscar marked Cross’s meteoric rise to the top.

To date, Cross has released nine albums (not counting hits packages) and a body of work revealing a steady, focused dedication to continuous artistic growth.

Tickets are $70 for adults, $65 for seniors, Brazosport College employees and BC Former Student Association members and $25 for students and children.

Advance tickets are available at The Clarion Box Office by calling (979) 230-3156 or online at clarionboxoffice.brazosport.edu.
