Siskin StarNight features the Grammy Award winner.
Stars are falling on Chattanooga. Two-time Grammy Award-winner Colbie Caillat will be the special guest headliner at the Siskin Children’s Institute StarNight 2014 on Saturday, Aug. 16 at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
Her first single, “Bubbly”, skyrocketed to number five on the US Billboard charts, and her debut album, Coco, achieved double-platinum status. The very next year, she recorded a duet with Jason Mraz, “Lucky,” which won the songbird her first Grammy.
Her next album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2010 Grammy Awards, and although she didn’t win in that category, Colbie ended up receiving a Grammy that night for her work as songwriter and background vocalist on Taylor Swift’s Fearless album. To date, Colbie has sold more than six million copies of her albums, and more than ten million singles worldwide. Everything Colbie touches turns to gold.
Don’t imagine that Colbie Caillat is just another pretty face with a strong voice. This girl is a musician. Not only does she write all her lyrics, but she also plays acoustic guitar.
The event is entering its 52nd year, and benefits children with special needs. This popular Chattanooga fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. with a formal dinner, and afterwards Colbie Caillat will take the stage.
