Huey Lewis

As the legendary, Grammy Award-winning front man for one of America’s great rock & roll bands, Huey Lewis has been a central force in the music industry since the early 1980s, when Huey Lewis and The News first shot to superstardom.  Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, The News has been thrilling audiences worldwide for more than 40 years, selling more than 20 million albums in the process. Among their most indelible singles are the top ten hits, “Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “I Want A New Drug,” “If This Is It,” “Hip To Be Square,” “Do You Believe In Love,” and “Workin’ For A Livin”. The group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back To The Future. “The Power of Love” went on to earn an Academy Award nomination and reach #1 on Billboard’s singles chart. In 2018, The News released Weather, their first album of original material in more than two decades, shortly after Lewis revealed that debilitating hearing loss, caused by a multi-decade’s long battle with Meniere’s disease, would likely put an early end to his remarkable singing career. As an actor, he has played Billy Flynn on Broadway in Chicago, co-starred on screen in Duets, opposite Gwyneth Paltrow, and guest starred on the sitcom “Hot in Cleveland” several times.
