Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter John Parr is returning to America with a new album and tour. The album and tour, titled “Letter to America,” feature his older fan favorite hits, such as “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “Naughty, Naughty,” along with a variety of new hits, including two discs of acoustic and rock tracks.
“I’m very excited to be coming back to America, my second home,” he says. “I’ve been away for too long, and I look forward to re-connecting with the American people. This album and tour are very special to me.”
Parr’s concert schedule features several dates in Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as other stops in the state and around the country, including York, Rock Hill, Burnsville, Chapel Hill, and Greensboro. He will also be performing in New York City, Santa Monica, and Augusta, Georgia, with additional stops to be added.
Having sold over 10 million albums, Parr is no stranger to producing hit songs. Two of his hit 80's songs -- “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “Naughty, Naughty” – remain fan favorites to this day, and will be featured on his new album. A lifetime-inspired 2-disc collection, it will be released on this country’s birthday, July 4th. “Letter to America” will also feature such new hits as “The Minute I Saw You” and “The Best a Man Can Get.” He also wrote the song “Comin’ Home” about his personal journey back to America to play music, reflective of everyone’s journey home after being away.
“It’s been a while since I performed in America, so this is going to be really great,” added Parr. “I have been looking forward to this for a while now. America has always been a special place to me, so I’m thrilled to be able to come back and share my music with everyone.”
In addition to his solo work, Parr has worked with many notable names in the music industry, including having performed with Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Meatloaf, Journey, Richard Marx, the Beach Boys, Celine Dion, Blue Oyster Cult, and Marilyn Martin.
