B.J. Thomas | Aug 10 & 11
The Franklin Theatre
Fri, Aug 10 8:00 pm


A true American institution whose iconic pop, country and gospel hits defined their respective generations and now transcend them, B.J. Thomas has found a unique way to celebrate an incredible half a century in music and some 47 years since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records. Thomas, a five time Grammy and two time Dove Award winner who has sold more than 70 million records and is ranked in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years. Many of Thomas’ signature hits (from “Raindrops” to “Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” and “Lonesome”) find him seeking some level of positivity to overcome the proverbial universal battle with loneliness. He extended this theme into his successful late 70s-early 80s foray into gospel music, which earned him the first four platinum albums in the genre’s history: Home Where I Belong, Happy Man, You Gave Me Love and Amazing Grace. Four of the singer’s Grammy Awards were earned from his work in gospel, in the category of “Best Gospel Other: Incl. Sacred, Religious or Inspirational Recording, Musical or Non-Musical.”
