Known for his chart-topping hit songs "Sailing," "Ride Like the Wind" and "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)," singer and songwriter Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self-titled debut album as the only artist to have won all four major Grammy categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. Now, Cross returns to the spotlight in CHRISTOPHER CROSS AND FRIENDS, a concert special recorded live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas for Austin City Limits Live (ACL Live). Performing the pop songs that his fans love, the singer is also joined on stage by some of his long-time friends and mentors in the music business: Mike Love of The Beach Boys singing "Kokomo" and "Good Vibrations"; Michael McDonald performing his 1986 hit single "What a Fool Believes" and The Doobie Brothers' 1976 song "Taking it to the Streets"; and guitarist Eric Johnson performing "All Right." Maestro Peter Bay and The Barton Strings, and Austin's premiere children's choir, the Conspirare Youth Choir, are also featured in the program.
