PEP.ph | Jim Brickman releases "Beautiful World" album

Grammy-nominated recording artist Jim Brickman never stops working, even after he takes his final bow at a concert. After 15 successful years in the music business, Jim's career continues to take on new directions and grow.

After filming his spectacular new PBS concert, Beautiful World, Jim will embark on a 75-city Beautiful World concert tour: 50 cities in Fall 2009, and 25 in Spring 2010.

Beautiful World is inspired by Jim's unique gift of bridging borders and cultural divides through his music. This intimate show celebrates the way music connects and unites us. Shot in high definition, it features breathtaking views of the falls.

Sharing the stage with Jim are world-renowned guest stars including Latin superstar Jon Secada, American Idol Season 6 finalist Melinda Doolittle, former member of Celtic Woman Orla Fallon, pop pianist Arthur Hanlon, Celtic violinist David Klinkenberg, Canadian singing sensation Mark Masri, plus fan favorites Anne Cochran and Tracy Silverman.

A native of Cleveland, Jim began playing piano at the age of five. He  studied music at the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music. Known as America's Romantic Piano Sensation, he revolutionized the sound of adult contemporary music with his pop-style solo piano. Over the course of his remarkable career, Jim was named SESAC "Songwriter of the Year," and earned a Canadian Country Music Award for "Best Vocal/ Instrumental Collaboration," and Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Associate for "The Gift."

Jim established a reputation for collaborations with gifted vocal talents like Martina McBride, Michael W. Smith, Michael Bolton, Lady Antebellum, Carly Simon, Donny Osmond and others. He is the most charted male Adult Contemporary Artist with hits like "Valentine," "The Gift," "Destiny," "By Heart," "The Love I Found In You," "Never Alone," "Love of My Life" and "Peace."

Jim is equally successful in other endeavors, including a weekly syndicated radio show, Your Weekend with Jim Brickman, and two best-selling books of essays, Simple Things and Love Notes: 101 Lessons from the Heart.

Jim performed at ABC's Gala for the President at Ford's Theatre, was music correspondent for NBC's Today, and hosted the A&E special Winter Solstice on Ice.

Jim's new CD Beautiful World features all-new music by Jim Brickman including some heard on the PBS concert special, plus additional new solo piano pieces.

Featured on the CD is the brand new song "Beautiful World (We're All Here)" sung by Adam Crossley. You'll also hear the concert finale "What The World Needs Now Is Love" performed by Jim Brickman, Jon Secada, Melinda Doolittle, Orla Fallon, Mark Masri and Anne Cochran and "What A Wonderful World" sung by Jon Secada.
