ABOUT KEVIN KERN
Legally blind since birth, Kevin Kern has become synonymous with beautiful, melodic music. His melodies exude lyricism, simplicity, and a directness that touches the heart of the listener.
Kevin's special relationship to the piano as both a performer and composer expresses itself most clearly in a concept he calls "sound painting" where he uses the piano to create musical pictures for his listening audience. A six time Billboard charting artist, Kevin Kern has performed to sold-out audiences throughout the US and Asia. Highlights have included a special performance for the G20 Summit in Seoul, an eight city tour with "Britain's Got Talent" winner Paul Potts, and a triumphant five city tour of China.
Kevin's melodies have become part of the soundtrack of everyday life, whether in a local news program, in late night talk shows like David Letterman, or international television dramas such as Korea's iconic "Autumn in My Heart".
His music has also appeared in commercials for Mitusbishi, Blue Cross, and is a perennial favorite for the in-flight programming offerings of many of the worlds major airlines including United, Delta and Singapore Airlines.
This performance celebrates the 20th anniversary of his phenomenally successful debut CD, "In the Enchanted Garden" and also his latest release, "When I Remember".
