Cross was the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including his No. 1 hit Sailing. His 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single Ride Like the Wind rocketed to the No. 2 spot; the massive success of the second single Sailing made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, Never Be the Same and Say You’ll Be Mine he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammys in 1981.
Cross also scored a second No. 1 hit and Academy Award, with Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do).
