Five-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist B.J. Thomas will take the stage Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. at the Arkansas State University-Newport Center for the Arts, and good seats are still available.  

In the final performance of this season’s ASUN Patron Series, Thomas, who has sold over 70 million records, is set to perform the classics that have made him a true American institution and ranked him in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years. Also a two-time Dove Award winner, Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music and his signature hits – the Oscar-winning “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head”, the million-selling “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” and his career-igniting cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” – are instantly recognized worldwide.
