With global sales totaling more than 75 million, Grammy and American Music Award winner KENNY G is the biggest-selling instrumental musician of all time. To add to his accolades, Kenny G has both the best-selling instrumental album of all time with Breathless and the best-selling Christmas album of all time with Miracles. Never one to rest idle, Kenny G continues to tour all over the world to adoring fans of all demographics. Come see Kenny G perform holiday classics at the Palace Theater on December 16 as part of his The Miracles Holiday & Hits Tour.
Kenny Gorelick started playing professionally with Barry White‘s Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1976. After graduating from the University of Washington, Kenny G worked with Jeff Lorber Fusion, making two albums with the group. Soon he was signed to Arista, recording his debut as a leader in 1982. His fourth album, Duotones (which included the very popular “Songbird”), made him into a star. Soon he was in demand for guest appearances on recordings of such famous singers as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Natalie Cole. Kenny G’s own records have sold remarkably well, particularly Breathless, which has easily topped eight million copies in the U.S.; his total album sales top 30 million copies.
The holiday album Miracles, released in 1994, and 1996’s Moment continued the momentum of his massive commercial success. He also recorded his own version of the Celine Dion/Titanic smash “My Heart Will Go On” in 1998, but the following year he released Classics in the Key of G, a collection of jazz standards like “‘Round Midnight” and “Body and Soul,” possibly to reclaim some jazz credibility. Faith: A Holiday Album was released that same year, followed by a limited-edition re-release of the 1997 Greatest Hits disc.
