Michael Bolotin[http://pages.cthome.net/hirsch/bolton.htm Michael Bolton: Biography], The Jewish Historical Society of New Haven, 1998. (born February 26, 1953), known professionally as Michael Bolton, is an American singer-songwriter. Bolton originally performed in the hard rock and heavy metal genres from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, both on his early solo albums and those he recorded as the frontman of the band Blackjack. He is best known, however, for his series of soft rock ballads, recorded after a stylistic change in the late 1980s. He is noted for his distinctive tenor/countertenor vocal style.
