High Point Market's Stars Under the Stars to Feature Donny Osmond and Christopher Cross

High Point, NC, March 16, 2016 — Stars Under the Stars, the legendary series of events at the High Point Market, is offering two unique nights of entertainment at Spring Market, April 16 - 20, 2016.

On Saturday, April 16, Christopher Cross will take Center Stage to delight Market guests with a repertoire of hits that have virtually defined adult contemporary music. A winner of five Grammy awards and one Oscar, Cross first burst onto the scene in 1980 with the song of the year, “Sailing.” As the decade unfolded, Cross continued to top the charts with tunes such as “Ride Like the Wind,” “Say You’ll Be Mine,” “Never Be the Same,” “All Right,” “No Time for Talk,” and “Think of Laura.” Plus, his collaboration with Burt Bacharach, “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You can Do)” earned an Academy Award in 1982 as Best Song from a Film. Through the years, Cross has remained a unique artist whose nine albums comprise a body of work that reveals a sophisticated sensitivity, and a steady, focused dedication to artistic growth. A performer who truly enjoys connecting with his audience, Cross currently plays close to 100 live shows per year.

On Sunday, April 17, Donny Osmond steps up to deliver an evening of exceptional entertainment. Starting as the original teen idol in a boy band with his brothers, Osmond has enjoyed a 50-plus year career as a singer, actor, television series host, best-selling author, motivational speaker, and Season 9 champion of Dancing with the Stars. He has earned 33 gold records and sold over 100 million albums. Today, Donny performs at the Flamingo Las Vegas with his sister, Marie. Their show is so popular that its venue was recently renamed “The Donny & Marie Showroom.” Plus, they have enjoyed a five year run in “Best of Las Vegas,” by the Las Vegas Journal Review. Donny and wife, Debbie, recently launched Donny Osmond Home with the brand message, “Making Home and Family #1.” Sponsors of this event include Donny Osmond Home Brand, Coaster Fine Furniture, Sagebrook Home and Kas Rugs.

Doors open for all events at 7:00 p.m. at Center Stage, between the Transportation Terminal and Showplace, and the concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. Please note, doors will open at 6:45 pm for market-goers who have been issued a Buyer pass.
