Real Name:
Christopher Charles Geppert
Profile:
Born on May 3, 1951 in San Antonio, Texas. Christopher Charles Geppert, better known by his stage name Christopher Cross (born San Antonio, Texas, May 3, 1951) is an American singer-songwriter, Oscar winner, Golden Globe and 5 Grammy Awards.

His real name is Christopher Geppert. His best known composition is "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" for the movie Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. The song won the Oscar in 1981 (shared award with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen).

Cross played with an Austin group called Flash before signing a contract with Warner Bros., thanks to which he released a first album called Christopher Cross in 1979 for which he won 5 Grammy awards. He received in the same gala the 4 main prizes that are: best recording, best song, best album and best novel artist. Of this album they emphasize the songs "Sailing", "Ride Like the Wind" and "Never Be the Same."

His second album called Another Page of 1983 included the songs "Think of Laura" and "All Right".

The song Think Of Laura has nothing to do with the characters Luke and Laura from the General Hospital series that were very popular when the song was a success, but with a friend of Christopher's girlfriend who died by a stray bullet while traveling in A car.

Cross contributed voices in the 1985 David Lee Roth song called "California Girls."

Cross also voiced Alan Parsons' song "So Far Away" and has once come up with him on stage to play it.

The song Loving Strangers (David's theme) is part of the soundtrack of the movie Nothing in Common of 1986, with Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason.

His daughter Madison Cross is a singer and actress.

The oldest son of Peter Griffin in the series Father of Family (American Guy) is called Christopher Cross Griffin.

Christopher holds the record of being the only artist to win the so-called "Big Four" of the Grammy Awards in a single ceremony: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist, in 1981.
