Once the American public got a taste of Cook’s talent, it was obvious he wouldn’t be needing a day job. His self-titled RCA debut bowed at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart, spawning two top-20 singles, the platinum “Light On” and “Come Back To Me.” The album sold more than one million copies and made Cook an in demand touring artist. Cook followed up with his sophomore album, ‘This Loud Morning‘, produced by Matt Serletic (Rob Thomas, matchbox twenty, Collective Soul), which debuted in the top ten. Cook’s stats are impressive. Collectively, his songs have sold more than five million tracks and ringtones, including his two platinum and one gold-certified singles, but the numbers that mean the most to Cook are his charitable endeavors. He has raised more than one million dollars for brain tumor research and funding, and traveled thousands of miles to perform on USO Tours for soldiers in both Kuwait and Iraq.
Opening the evening will be KU students, The Sharp Sisters, who recently won the Student Union Activities event, KU’s Got Talent.
