Carried by the wind ...
Christopher Charles Geppert, better known as Christopher Cross, is an American singer who took his first steps as an artist in the group "Flash". It was in 1979 that he decided to start a solo career and released his first album called… Christopher Cross. And it's a triumph ! Especially with flagship titles like "Sailing" and "Ride like the wind". A triumph that brought him the triumph of 5 Grammy Awards (Single of the year, Album of the year, Revelation of the year, ...) and he remains to this day the only singer to have achieved such a feat. The second album "Another page" released in 1983 was also a success with the singles "All right" and "Think of Laura". Other albums will follow without experiencing the same success, stopping the meteoric career of this gifted artist.
