by ISINA

Kenny G is well known and loved worldwide. His career started with a job as a sideman for Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1973; he was 17 and still in high school. He continued to play professionally while studying for a major in accounting at the University of Washington in Seattle and graduated magna cum laude. He played with the funk band Cold, Bold and Together before becoming a credited member of The Jeff Lorber Fusion. This all led to him working on several film soundtracks, including Dying Young and The Bodyguard. The song "Theme for Dying Young", written for that movie, was nominated for a Best Pop Instrumental Performance. G co-wrote the soundtrack of The Bodyguard, starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, and performed his own song "Waiting for You" as well as his single "Even If My Heart Would Break". His music was also included in The Shadow and Miracle on 34th Street. In February 2000, Kenny G was invited to the White House and performed for state governors and members of the Clinton Cabinet. Kenny’s  2010 album Heart and Soul is strongly influenced by R&B, featuring Robin Thicke and his long-time collaborator Babyface. It garnered positive reviews from critics. February 2011 Kenny G appeared in the Super Bowl XLV ad for Audi called "Release the Hounds." Kenny G later starred in a short as Head of Riot Suppression for a luxury Prison. In February 2017, Kenny G was satirized by Andy Samberg in the Netflix program "Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special". At the end of the scene, Kenny G appears as a janitor.

 

All of this has led up to him, once again, being put under the spotlight inside the 100 best selling Albums And Artists Of All Time list for his song Breathless. Kenny’s song has sold 12 million copies. He is a loved and adored Isina mentor and all of us are rooting for him every single day!
