PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort will feature award-winning musician, singer and songwriter Kenny Loggins on Friday, November 11, performing live inside the event center. Kenny Loggins’ more than four-decade career has taken him from the top of the charts to the toast of the Grammys. He’s had smash hits on Hollywood’s favorite soundtracks, rocked stages around the world, and found his way into children’s hearts while contributing his beautiful, soulful voice to platinum albums of an astounding variety. of genres. His gift for creating deeply emotional music is unparalleled, and it has been a part of his life for as long as he can remember.
Early in his career, Kenny formed a duo with producer and former Poco member Jim Messina. Their debut album, “Kenny Loggins With Jim Messina Sittin’ In,” was released in 1971. The prolific recording and touring duo released a studio album every year from 1971 to 1976, wrapping it up with “Native Sons.”
Kenny’s 1977 solo debut album, “Celebrate Me Home,” went platinum and included “I Believe in Love,” the song he wrote for Barbra Streisand to star in the movie “A Star Is Born.” The album was released just in time for Loggins to score a gig opening for Fleetwood Mac on the Rumors Tour, and he went from playing big venues to arenas overnight. He befriends Stevie Nicks, who generously offers him to sing one of his songs. Loggins wrote the perfect song with his friend, Melissa Manchester — “Whenever I Call You Friend” from her 1978 LP “Nightwatch” — which he credits as “the moment that launched my solo career.”
Since then he has 12 platinum albums, a pair of Grammys and hits on nearly every Billboard chart to his credit. Performing live has always been – and remains – a key part of Loggins’ life.
“It’s an experience that I don’t have anywhere else. It’s time travel,” he explained. “I make a connection with the public that is special to me and unique in my life.”
