Talent has taken McCrae to three world tours with critics raving at every performance and audiences screaming for more. Since his smash hit "Rock Your Baby" rocketed him to fame in 1974, George has set the music world on fire with hit after hit. Two platinum singles, two platinum LP's and fourteen gold records, top music awards from all over the globe have attested to this amazing vocalist's popularity and talent.
