As a performer, songwriter and producer, Richard Marx’s nearly three-decade-long career has had innumerable of highlights. The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, starting with his self-titled debut which went to No. 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. He has also enjoyed success 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 earned a 2004 Song of the Year Grammy for co-authoring Luther Vandross’ “Dance with My Father.” He has also written with Keith Urban, Jennifer Nettles, Sara Bareilles and Vince Gill.
