MANHATTAN — Just in time for Valentine's Day, best-selling solo pianist Jim Brickman is bringing the live concert experience in a virtual format to Kansas State University's McCain Connected series. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit McCain Auditorium.

Brickman will perform five live virtual concerts: 8 p.m. CST Friday, Feb. 12; and 6 and 9 p.m. CST Saturday, Feb. 13, and Sunday, Feb. 14. The concerts will be filled with Brickman's own hits songs, including "Love of My Life," "Destiny," "Angel Eyes" and "Valentine."

Enjoy this uplifting, family-friendly virtual concert experience from the comfort of home while supporting the arts during this challenging time. To purchase tickets and to support McCain Auditorium, go to jimbrickman.com and enter the code "lovema" at the point of sale to ensure McCain Auditorium will receive its share of ticket proceeds. The early bird ticket price of $40 is available through Jan. 31; tickets cost $50 starting Feb. 1.

The February concerts come on the heels of Brickman's virtual holiday concerts, which also were available through McCain Connected. Through these holiday concerts, Brickman was able to donate more than $100,000 to the arts across the U.S.

Per Billboard magazine, Brickman has earned 22 No. 1 albums and 34 Top 20 radio singles. He's garnered two Grammy nominations, gospel music's Dove Award, two SESAC Songwriter of the Year awards and the Canadian Country Music Award. He also has a music scholarship named for him by his alma mater, the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music.

Brickman jumped from a career as a jingle writer of famous tunes for advertising to reviving the romantic standard of the popular song. His first album release was 1995's "No Words," and he's gone on to sell 8 million albums worldwide. He and his star-studded vocal collaborations have crossed genres to feature luminaries such as Lady A, Carly Simon, Michael W. Smith, Herb Alpert, Michael Bolton, Donny Osmond, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton-John, Johnny Mathis, Kenny Loggins, John Oates, Martina McBride, Wayne Brady, Jane Krakowski and countless country, Broadway, pop and jazz musicians.

The author of three best-selling books, Brickman has starred in five TV concert specials and is in the 22nd season of hosting the popular syndicated radio show, "The Jim Brickman Show." The Brickman Bedtime Story podcast can be seen on Facebook LIVE and heard on Pandora, Apple Spotify and iHeart Radio podcasts every Tuesday night.
