B.J. Thomas

Beloved singer B.J. Thomas will perform at the Brauntex Theatre on Feb. 14, featuring a Valentine Tribute with some Great Love Songs. His performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

About B.J.

Born Billy Joe “B.J.” Thomas on Aug. 7, 1942 in Hugo, Okla., Thomas graduated from Lamar High School in Rosenberg and began singing in a local group called The Triumphs. Together they released ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” a cover of the Hank Williams song. The album sold over a million copies in 1966 and launched Thomas’ career.

His next single, “Hooked on a Feeling,” also sold a million copies. In 1970, his song “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” was used in the movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” giving Thomas his third consecutive million selling record. In 1975 he released “Hey Won’t You Play Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song,” which is the longest titled song to reach the No. 1 position on the Billboard charts.

His string of hits continued into the ‘80s with such classics as “Whatever Happened to Old Fashioned Love” and “New Looks from an Old Lover.” To date, Thomas has sold over 70 million records and shows no sign of slowing down.
