Christopher Cross

Christopher Cross (born Christopher Geppert on May 3, 1951 in San Antonio, Texas) is an American singer and songwriter. Cross first played with an Austin-based cover band named Flash before signing a solo contract with Warner Bros. He is best known for composing "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" from the film Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minelli. This song won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981 (with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen.)

Cross released his self-titled debut album Christopher Cross in 1979, which garnered him five Grammy Awards. He is, along with Norah Jones, the only artist to receive all of the "Big Four" Grammy Awards (Best Record, Song, Album, and New Artist) in the same year (it should be noted however that although Jones sang the song, she did not personally receive the Song of the Year Grammy because it is a songwriter's award). Hits from this album included "Sailing", "Ride Like the Wind"(featuring backing vocals by Michael McDonald?) and "Never Be the Same." ...
