GRAMMY AWARD winning Kirk Whalum (born July 11, 1958) is an American R&B and smooth jazz saxophonist and songwriter.

He toured with Whitney Houston for more than seven years and soloed in her single "I Will Always Love You", the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. He was also featured on many Luther Vandross albums, most often playing on the singer's covers of older pop and R&B standards such as "Anyone Who Had a Heart", "I (Who Have Nothing)", and "Love Won't Let Me Wait".

Kirk Whalum has recorded a series of well-received solo albums and film soundtracks, with music ranging from pop to R&B to smooth jazz. His musical accomplishments have brought him a total of 12 Grammy nominations. He won his first Grammy award in 2011 for Best Gospel Song ("It's What I Do", featuring Lalah Hathaway) alongside lifelong friend and writer, Jerry Peters.

In 2005, Whalum recorded the Babyface Songbook (2005) with R&B icon Babyface's best songs of the past 15 years, including "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)," "I'll Make Love to You," "When Can I See You," and others. Joining in the intimate and stylish proceedings are other smooth jazz notables, including trumpeter Rick Braun, soprano saxophone player Dave Koz, and guitarists Norman Brown and Chuck Loeb among others. That same year, he also performed a cover "Any Love" on the album Forever, For Always, For Luther, which included other smooth jazz greats, like the aforementioned Dave Koz, bassist Marcus Miller, tenor saxophonist Richard Elliot and alto saxophonist Mindi Abair covering Vandross' well-known songs.

Kirk Whalum is one of the most influential contemporary saxophonists of his generation.

Highlights in his career include a Grammy nomination for his collaboration with Bob James, "Joined At The Hip", Kirk Whalum has also captured three No. 1 album slots on the Billboard Jazz Charts, and has had several albums chart in the Jazz Top 10. As for his romantic interpretive ability, his is the standout sax solo on Whitney Houston's worldwide smash hit "I Will Always Love You." His trademark saxophone stylings have been heard on stage and on hundreds of recordings with the preeminent pop, jazz, R&B and gospel musicians of our time, including Babyface, Take 6, Nancy Wilson, Kevin Mahogany, George Benson, Yolanda Adams, BeBe Winans, CeCe Winans, Barbra Streisand, Edwin Hawkins, Rev. Al Green, Luther Vandross and Quincy Jones. A seasoned veteran of the studio and the road, a catalogue of Kirk's featured session work would fill a Who's Who of modern music.

After opening for Bob James in Houston one night, Kirk Whalum was invited to New York by the pianist to appear on his album "12". Bob James, in recalling that night, said, "He [Kirk Whalum] was opening for a concert I played in Houston. I was actually able to watch part of his show - unlike most of the time when I don't get to hear the opening act. I just loved him."

Kirk Whalum is also part of the all star lineup on Warner Bros. Records "Casino Lights '99", featuring Bob James, Boney James, Mark Turner, Kenny Garrett, Larry Carlton, Fourplay, George Duke, Kevin Mahogany, Rick Braun and Gabriela Anders.

While his musical accomplishments have brought him professional and critical acclaim with a total of seven Grammy Nominations and one Stellar Award (Best Gospel Instrumental Album), it is his benevolent spirit and charitable efforts that truly define him.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE KIRK WHALUM?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire KIRK WHALUM for an event?)
(i.e., what is KIRK WHALUM booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for KIRK WHALUM, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
