Grammy winner Peter Frampton to perform at Icon Honors

Americasmart has announced that Grammy-winning musician Peter Frampton will headline the 2013 Icon Honors, to be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.
     Frampton is a celebrated guitarist whose Icon Honors performance will highlight "a spectacular evening created to champion the achievements of those in the gift and home furnishings arena whose passion for what they do is as genuine as the music they will enjoy," according to an Americasmart press release.
     The concert shares the Icon Honors 2013 main stage with the awards presented to home and gift retailers, manufacturers, sales agents and service providers from across the industry.
     "Peter Frampton's indelible mark on music and culture is testimony to the sheer power and passion of his artistry," said Jeffrey L. Portman Sr., president and chief operating officer of Icon Honors co-sponsor Americasmart Atlanta. "His signature style is unmistakable with a sound and energy that only he can create. Throughout his career Mr. Frampton has pushed the limits of innovation and creative expression, which is exactly what the Icon Honors celebration is all about."
     At 16, Frampton was lead singer and guitarist for British teen band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded seminal rock act Humble Pie. His first instrumental album, Fingerprints, was awarded the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album. His fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive!, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
     In addition to Americasmart, sponsors of the 2013 Icon Honors include the Gift & Home Trade Association and Home Accents Today parent company Sandow Media.
