One of the most loved pop-rock American artist to emerge in the beginning of the 80s. A solitary figure that very often took long pauses between the release of his albums and never cared of all the rules for a perfect career. Christopher Cross goal is and always was to remain sincere in his music and to put all his energy in writing and recording great pop songs. Probably, that’s why his music is still perceived as pure and sincere and after many years is still among the most played on adult oriented pop rock stations all over the world. Christopher Cross was the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the chart-topping „Sailing”. He is best known by most for his Top Ten hit songs, „Sailing“, „Ride Like the Wind“, and „Arthur‘s Theme (Best That You Can Do)“, the latter of which he performed for the film Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. „Sailing“ earned three awards at the 1981 Grammy Awards Ceremony, while „Arthur‘s Theme“ won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981 (with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen). His greatest successes were: Academy Award for Best Song, 1981, „Arthur‘s Theme (Best That You Can Do)“
Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, 1981, „Arthur‘s Theme (Best That You Can Do)“
