Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth Interview with Andy Kim, Iconic Pop Music Star
About Harvey's guest:
Today’s special guest, Andy Kim, is an iconic singer and songwriter who’s given us numerous Top 40 hit songs including “How’d We Ever Get This Way”, “Shoot ‘em up Baby”, “Baby I Love You”, “So Good Together”, “Be My Baby”, “Fire, Baby I’m on Fire”, “I Forgot to Mention” - and, of course, “Rock Me Gently”, which went straight to #1 on the Billboard charts and remained on the charts for a staggering 4 months.
He also co-wrote and sang on the enduring classic pop song, ”Sugar, Sugar” for the fictitious pop group “The Archies”, which stayed at No. 1 for 4 weeks and became Billboard’s Record of the Year and the biggest-selling record of 1969, AND the song ranks at number 90 on Billboard’s list of the Greatest Songs of All Time.
Our guest has received top industry honours including two JUNO Awards. In fact, in 1970 he received the very first JUNO Award ever given out, and it was for Male Vocalist of the Year. In 2004, he was voted by Canadian Music Week as the Best Solo Indie Artist of the Year.
He’s been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and Billboard's Hit Parade Hall of Fame. He has a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame, and in 2017, for the 2nd time in their 70-year history, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada – better known as SOCAN - honoured our guest with their Cultural Impact Award. Over his epic career, he has sold over 30 million records, and has had over half a billion streams on Spotify and YouTube.
And if all of that weren’t enough, I’m absolutely THRILLED to share the recent announcement that our guest will be appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada for his contributions to Canadian music as a trailblazer and legendary artist.
And for those of you living in the Toronto area, our guest will be returning to Massey Hall for his 19th annual Christmas show on Wednesday, December 6, for an unforgettable evening celebrating the magic of the season, with performances from our guest, along with some of Canada’s top music stars, with all proceeds donated to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
