Richard Marx
As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had innumerable highlights. The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to #8 and spawned four Top 5 singles, including the chart-topping “Hold on to the Nights,” with “Don’t Mean Nothing” earning him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The follow-up, 1989’s Repeat Offender, was even more successful, hitting #1 and going quadruple-platinum with two #1 singles in “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.” When both Rush Street (with two #1 AC hits in “Keep Coming Back” and “Hazard”) and Paid Vacation (with its #1 AC hit, “Now and Forever”) went platinum, Marx achieved a seven-year string of triumphs that rivaled any in pop-rock music history. To this day, he is the only male artist in history to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.

For most artists, that would be impressive enough – but Richard Marx didn’t stop there, launching a second, very successful, incarnation as a songwriter and producer, with songs like “To Where You Are,” the first hit single from Josh Groban’s debut album, as well as the NSYNC smash, “This I Promise You.” He went on to earn a 2004 Song of the Year Grammy for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ “Dance with My Father.” Across all formats, Marx has scored an amazing total of 14 #1 singles (including Keith Urban’s #1 smash “Long Hot Summer”) both as a performer and songwriter/producer, making him a true multi-talented threat who continues to challenge himself and his fans. He has also written with Jennifer Nettles, Sara Bareilles and Vince Gill. He holds the honor of being one of a handful of artists who have had a #1 hit in each of the past four decades.

Marx’s last album of all new material, My Own Best Enemy, was released in 2004 featuring hits “When You’re Gone” and “Ready to Fly.” In 2010, he released Stories To Tell, a greatest hits album which produced a Top 20 AC hit in “When You Loved Me.” In 2012 he released his first ever Christmas album, Christmas Spirit.

On July 8, 2014, he released his eighth album, Beautiful Goodbye, featuring all new material such as its first single and video, “Whatever We Started.” Fans may find Marx’s eighth studio album, a bit of a departure from his previous albums. According to the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, he set out to make a deliberately sexy album. “The songs on this record were influenced greatly by everyone from Sade to Bebel Gilberto to various EDM artists to even Chopin. I’m known for romantic music in the past, but this music I wrote is all more sensual and ethereal, and the lyrics are more adventurous than I’ve been willing to go in the past.”

Every track on the new album also incorporates an orchestral element, and the recording of the tracks was, according to Marx, “a thrill beyond anything I’ve done in the studio. And singing these songs brought out what I believe are the most effortless vocals of my recording career, so far.”

All the tracks on Beautiful Goodbye are written and produced by Marx except “Getaway,” co-written and produced with Walter Afanasieff; “Forgot To Remember” co-written with Vertical Horizon frontman and frequent Marx collaborator, Matt Scannell; “Turn Off The Night” co-written with multi-hit songwriter David Hodges, and the title track, co-written with Daisy Fuentes. A special edition of Beautiful Goodbye will also be available exclusively at Target and features two additional songs: “Moscow Calling,” a collaboration between Marx and well known EDM artist and DJ Morgan Page, and “Just Go.”

Richard has made a commitment to several different causes, from donating the royalties from his hit single, “Should’ve Known Better,” to build a room at the NYU Medical Center for pediatric cancer patients, to his recording of “Children of the Night,” which brought attention to the plight of homeless children on the streets, raising more than $500k for the Children of the Night Foundation. Marx has also performed benefit concerts over the years for the TJ Martell Foundation, Toys for Tots, Make a Wish Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Best Buddies and the Special Olympics. Richard and his band entertained the U.S. troops stationed in Germany and, since 2008, he has hosted an annual event in Chicago for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, the first of which featured a concert by Richard and Kenny Rogers. Richard has also organized an annual all-star benefit concert for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, raising more than $4 million for research to cure the disease.

Belinda Carlisle
As the lead singer of the definitive female rock band of the 1980s, Belinda Carlisle and the Go-Go’s provided the soundtrack to our adolescence and early college years, the summer parties, the best of times. With their double-platinum debut Beauty and the Beat, the Go-Go’s became the first girl group to top the US charts and opened the door for female musicians throughout the rock world. When the band disbanded in 1985, as one of the most successful girl groups of all time, we were still mad about her when she released her solo debut Belinda the following year, and was “Mad About You”. In 1987, we discovered “Heaven Is a Place On Earth” with Belinda, who made us go weak at the sound of her undeniable voice as she sang timeless love songs, indulging our appetite for classic pop tunes. The multi-platinum album Heaven On Earth went number one worldwide, spawning a string of top ten hits, establishing Carlisle as one of the most beloved female artists in the universe.

With 1989’s Runaway Horses, Belinda Carlisle perfected her pop identity; soaring passionate balladry with songwriter/producer Rick Nowels’ impeccable rock-inflected wall-of-sound, backed by glamorous videos that heightened Belinda’s natural allure. We were hooked on a woman that displayed a subtle Ann Margaret-esque sensuality, not only possessing a physical resemblance, but projecting the quiet strength of the classic American beauty with a bit of an edge. On subsequent albums, Live Your Life Be Free (1991) and Real (1993), Carlisle would continue to create infectious pop songs, penetrating top-forty charts here and abroad.

Amid the clamor and chaos of the Los Angeles riots in 1992, Carlisle found solace and peace in the child she delivered that April day. James Duke Mason, her son with film producer/husband Morgan Mason, would more than shift her priorities in life, but prompt Carlisle to leave the city that had been the backdrop to her fondest memories. The native-Californian moved the family to France in 1994, settling last year in Great Britain, away from the flurry of city dwelling to a sedate Victorian home in the English countryside.

In July of 1997, Belinda Carlisle’s A Woman & A Man was released in the United States on ARK 21 Records.

Bonnie Tyler
With a career spanning four decades, and a voice instantly identifiable the world over, Bonnie is the international first lady of rock. Born in Skewen, Neath, South Wales, Tyler grew up listening to, and being influenced by, the legendary female artists of the day, especially Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.

Bonnie’s breakthrough hit was her second ever single “Lost In France” which climbed to No.9 in the UK charts. The track was then released in Europe and became a huge hit, staying in the Top Ten in Germany for over six months. “It’s A Heartache”, Bonnie’s next single was her first hit in the USA, reaching No. 3 in the Billboard chart, and was a massive hit all over the world.

The 80’s saw even greater success. A burgeoning collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim Steinman garnered both a Grammy Nomination and phenomenal international recognition with the album “Faster Than The Speed Of Night”, and multi-platinum selling power ballad “Total Eclipse Of The Heart”. Continuing their working relationship – “Holding Out For A Hero”, from the soundtrack to the film Footloose, proved similarly popular and has also featured in several other movies since including the Shrek series.

In the 90’s Tyler worked with “the German Simon Cowell” writer/producer Deiter Bohlen giving rise to albums including the monster German hit “Bitterblue”.

Bonnie was impacting the European market so much that in 2003 she recorded a dual-language cover of “Total Eclipse”, with French artist Kareen Antonn titled “Si demain (Turn Around)” which topped the charts in Belgium, Poland and France, the latter for ten weeks.

Both “It’s a Heartache” and “Total Eclipse of the Heart” are among the best-selling singles of all time, with sales in excess of six million. Bonnie’s work has earned her two Grammy Award nominations and three Brit Award nominations, among other accolades.
