Over the course of a remarkable career that spans more than two decades, Seal has put out eight great albums. He has won four Grammy Awards and sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. His hit single “A Kiss From a Rose” was featured in the motion picture “Batman Forever” (1995) and won Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. In September 2010, Seal released his seventh studio album “Commitment”, which peaked at No. 11 on the U.K. chart giving him his fifth Top 20 album in his native Britain. Seal’s new album “Soul 2” was released this past year with songs that helped define an era.
Grammy-Award winning R&B and Soul singer-songwriter, Macy Gray, will share the stage before Seal this summer. She rose to fame in 1999 with the release of her massive hit single “I Try.” Gray’s recent release, “Covered” (2012), features her soulful renditions of songs from artists such as Metallica and My Chemical Romance.
