FAITH HILL has established herself as one of the music industry’s top vocalists, with a voice that is as powerful as it is recognizable. Her 15-year career has been highlighted by the sale of over 30 million records worldwide, during which time she has celebrated 13 No. 1 singles and 20 No. 1 videos. In fact, 1999’s Breathe, 2002’s Cry, and 2005’s Fireflies all debuted consecutively at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Pop Album Chart and Country Chart, making her the only female artist ever to accomplish this feat.
Faith is a five-time Grammy winner who has also won three Country Music Association Awards, 12 Academy of Country Music Awards, four American Music Awards, and four People’s Choice Awards. Her marketability knows no equal. Her ability to draw television audiences nationwide is evidenced by the success of her own network television specials: 2000’s CBS network broadcast of Faith!, the NBC network’s broadcast of 2002’s Faith Hill: When The Lights Go Down, 2005’s Faith Hill: Fireflies, as well as 2008’s hosting of CBS’ Home for the Holidays and her PBS network Christmas Special for Soundstage.
In 2009, when Faith performed “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl, she became the only country artist ever to have performed both “America the Beautiful” and the National Anthem at the Super Bowl (she sang the Anthem at Super Bowl XXXIV). For the past two years, Faith has been NBC’s voice for Sunday Night Football, and she’s performed at every major awards show, including multiple appearances at the Academy Awards, the Grammy Awards and VH1’s Divas. In 2001, Faith appeared on America: A Tribute To Heroes, a benefit for the rescue workers and victims of the September 11th attacks and in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina, she appeared on NBC’s A Concert for Hurricane Relief.
Faith co-headlined 2006’s Soul2Soul II Tour, which became the highest-grossing country tour of all time and the most attended of the year, in any musical genre. In fact, with the tour’s wrap taking place in 2007, it was and is the highest-grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history. It was selected by Pollstar magazine as the “Major Tour of 2006” over industry powerhouses such as Madonna and The Rolling Stones. The Soul2Soul II Tour came on the heels of 2000’s Soul2Soul Tour, which was one of that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tours.
Faith Hill is one of this generation’s most likeable, credible, and visible talents, so it was no surprise that Hollywood came knocking for 2004’s remake of The Stepford Wives. Faith starred in the Paramount Pictures production alongside Nicole Kidman, Glenn Close, Bette Midler, Matthew Broderick, and Christopher Walken.
Later this year, Coty, Inc. will release Faith Hill Parfums.
Raised in Star, Mississippi, Faith moved to Nashville at the age of 19. In 1993, her debut single, “Wild One,” spent four weeks at No. 1. From there, she never looked back. Faith Hill has based her career on dedication, passion, and commitment. Adding to these her unparalleled vocal talents and style, she has become a sought-after entertainer and has firmly planted herself at the top of the music scene, where it’s easy to see (and hear) that she might just stay for a while.
