Biography

Michael Bolton's soulful voice and euphonious blond mullet mesmerized legions of female fans worldwide, driving album sales into the millions. Yet with all the adoration and heavy radio rotation, he struggled to earn the critical acclaim he desired throughout most of his career. The Grammy-winning artist shot to stardom with power ballads like "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" (1989), his 1991 cover of "When a Man Loves a Woman," and "Love is a Wonderful Thing" (1991). But the more albums he sold, the more his critics balked. His string of hits screeched to a halt in the late 1990s, and the only news he made stemmed from his notorious love life; particularly his on-again, off-again relationship with primetime vixen Nicolette Sheridan. In 2010, Bolton tried to resuscitate his career by collaborating with dance-pop sensation, Lady Gaga, on a new album, and joining ABC's reality competition "Dancing with the Stars" (2005- ). While not amounting to a major comeback, Bolton's efforts showcased the passion and innate talent that had made him one of the most successful singers of adult-contemporary music in the late 20th century.
