Biography

There are several artists using the name “Chris Norman.”
1) from Yorkshire UK -rock & pop
2) from Halifax, Nova Scotia- plays the traditional wooden flute.
===============================================
1) Yorkshire-born Chris first found fame with 70s rock group Smokie before embarking on a very successful solo career in 1986 with the hit Midnight Lady. Today he is an established artist in many countries across the world with over 30 albums to his name.

Coming from a show business family of two generations, it is no surprise that Chris got his first guitar at the age of seven and formed the first incarnation of the band that was to become Smokie in his early teenage years. In 1968 the band turned professional and after several years of touring the country, performing live radio broadcasts and releasing three singles under the name Kindness, the final line-up of Smokie Alan Silson, Terry Uttley, Pete Spencer and of course Chris Norman was complete. They released their first album Pass it Around as Smokie in 1975 on RAK records.

By summer they had their first hit single with If You Think You Know How To Love Me. This was followed by a string of 14 hit singles including Living Next Door To Alice, Ill Meet You At Midnight, Lay Back In The Arms Of Someone and a very successful duet with Suzi Quatro, Stumblin In, which gave Chris his first taste of success outside the group. Their popularity grew exponentially with every hit album and Smokie were selling out arena gigs all over the world.

    The Night has turned cold is a really great song. Chris Norman is too romantic for some but unarguably a music legend.

    www.goodtre.com Whole Food Nutrients Can Optimize Health Leading global health authorities like the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and American Heart Association agree that the key to preventing disease and promoting health is weight management, physical activity and eating a nutrient-rich diet that includes whole grains, fruits & vegetables and fish. Everyone should increase consumption of whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids—and maintain a healthy weight. But even those with good intentions to eat a healthy diet face challenges. Busy lifestyles, eating on-the-run, and the prevalence of processed foods all contribute towards nutritional gaps that would benefit from nutritional supplements.
