Two-time Grammy Award winning artist, Peabo Bryson, was recognized by the Senate for his contributions to the music world.
Bryson created many duets with a bevy of talented women, including Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack, Melissa Manchester, Regina Belle, and Lea Solonga. His musical hits include “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again,” “Can You Stop the Rain,” “Through the Fire,” and “Unconditional Love.” In 1992 and 1993, Peabo Bryson won a Grammy Award for his performance of the song “Beauty and the Beast” with Celine Dion and “A Whole New World,” with Regina Belle.
Today’s recognition marks Bryson’s first public appearance in Hawai‘i with a concert tonight at the Hawai‘i Convention Center. However, prior to the concert, Bryson treated members of the Senate and guests in the Senate Gallery to a short performance of “A Whole New World” on the Senate floor following his official recognition ceremony.
