Kenny Loggins To Headline Atlanta Market Gala
AmericasMart Atlanta announced that Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and guitarist Kenny Loggins will take the stage at ICON HONORS 2012 as the featured musical entertainer. The ICON HONORS 2012 celebration is scheduled for Saturday, July 14 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis as the premier event of the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.
Loggins’ hits over four decades and 12 platinum albums reveal his lifelong passion for exploring the endless power of song. His ICON HONORS performance highlights a spectacular evening created to champion the achievements of those in the gift and home furnishings arena whose passion for what they do is as genuine as the music they will enjoy.
The concert shares the ICON HONORS 2012 main stage with Honors presented to home and gift retailers, manufacturers, sales agents and service providers from across the industry, plus a nationally acclaimed keynote speaker soon to be announced.
“Kenny Loggins is iconic in his own right as the essential creative force in music spanning the range of human emotion,” says Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of ICON HONORS co-sponsor AmericasMart Atlanta. “His songs are drawn from the mosaic of life experiences in the same way that ICON HONORS captures the hopes and dreams of those we celebrate,” Portman adds.
From a guitarist in rock bands, an acclaimed songwriter and a legendary country-rock duo to a sonic pioneer of smooth jazz, soundtrack superstar and live performer, Kenny Loggins is a massively successful and accomplished artist. For the past four decades, Loggins has been creating and producing award-winning albums and hit songs. His masterpieces include million-selling solo albums such as Celebrate Me Home, Keep The Fire, High Adventure and Nightwatch and hit “This Is It,” which helped him win top honor of Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy in 1980. Adding to his fame, in the 80s Loggins became the king of movie theme songs with “I’m Alright” from Caddyshack, “Footloose” from its namesake and “Danger Zone” from Top Gun, to name a few. His list of Grammy awards is long and so is his reign as a top musician. He brings this talent live to Atlanta for the ICON HONORS celebration this July.
