Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Michael Boltonâ€™s new album, One World One Love, was released by Universal Motown Records on May 4, 2010. Michael Bolton will celebrate the release of One World One Love by performing a North American tour, One World One Love, which kicked off in Tacoma, WA on August 13 and will come to the MARINA CIVIC CENTER in PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA JANUARY 25, 2011.
One World One Love is Boltonâ€™s 18th studio album and it finds him experimenting with an exciting new set of collaborators. The first single is a passionate power ballad called â€œMurder My Heartâ€ that was co-written and performed with Lady Gaga. R&B superstar Ne-Yo penned â€œThe Best,â€ an infectious mid tempo groove. And Jamaican sensation Tami Chynn makes a guest appearance on the reggae-inspired duet â€œCan You Feel Me.â€ One World One Love also contains superb covers of classic ballads by Terrence Trent Dâ€™Arby (â€œSign Your Nameâ€) and Van Morrison (â€œCrazy Loveâ€).
The Village Voice says One World One Love is full of â€œdramatic piano melodies,â€ along with â€œpulsing drums, and bombastic choruses that sound designed to burst forth from volcanoes, military helicopters, the mouths of gods.â€ And the Toronto Star raves: â€œThe voice of this American balladeer, who has sold more than 50 million records, is as raspy and beseeching as you remember…Though he paired up with young producers and co-writers, the result is mature message pop. Unexpected, but authentic.â€
The release of One World One Love follows the recent PBS broadcast of Michael Boltonâ€™s sold-out concert at Londonâ€™s historic Royal Albert Hall, which showcased the full range of Boltonâ€™s career, including his classic hits â€œWhen a Man Loves a Woman,â€ â€œTime, Love and Tenderness,â€ â€œSteel Bars,â€ and â€œHow am I Supposed to Live Without You,â€ as well as songs from the new album. The entire performance was recorded for a live album called Michael Bolton: Live at the Royal Albert Hall, which was released in February 2010 and sold exclusively at Target.
Throughout the course of his illustrious career, Michael Bolton has sold more than 53 million records worldwide. He has earned two Grammy Awards and countless other honors, including six American Music Awards, BMIâ€™s Songwriter of the Year Award, and a Hitmaker Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition, he has earned a star on Hollywoodâ€™s Walk of Fame, and sold out arenas worldwide. Bolton has performed with powerhouse legends such as Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, written songs with Bob Dylan, and penned hits for the likes of Barbra Streisand, Cher, and KISS.
