The Westminster College Celebrity Series will present a Valentine’s Day themed concert featuring Jim Brickman at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 8 in Orr Auditorium.
The concert is part of what Brickman calls “The Love Tour.” Brickman, a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio, is the most commercially successful instrumental pop pianist of the past two decades. Four of his albums have been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America — 1995’s “By Heart,” 1997’s “Picture This” and “The Gift,” and 1999’s “Destiny” — for sales of more than 500,000 copies. Overall, he’s sold more than 7 million albums, earned two Grammy Award nominations, and received numerous awards and accolades.
He’s amassed 27 top-40 singles on the adult contemporary charts, including 14 top-10 hits. His collaboration with Martina McBride, “Valentine,” scored at mainstream country radio in 1998, peaking at No. 9. Other Brickman staples include “Simple Things” with Rebecca Lynn Howard and “Peace” and “The Gift,” both with Collin Raye and Susan Ashton.
The show is presented by Celebrity Series and is not part of the regular season ticket. Tickets, starting at $32, are available from the Celebrity Series box office at 724-946-7354. Visit www.westminster.edu/celebrity for information.
