ALA MOANA (KHNL) - He's known as America's romantic piano sensation, and he's serenading Hawaii with a new album.

Saturday afternoon, diehard fans of Jim Brickman lined up at Barnes & Noble at Ala Moana Center to meet the Grammy Award winning artist and get his autograph.

Hawaii is Brickman's first pit-stop in a 100-city tour, promoting his new album called 'Beautiful World'.

Brickman says it's based on his experiences around the world, and even includes a song inspired by the Aloha state.

"I spent about a week on the Big Island and I fell in love with it so there's a song on the 'Beautiful World' album called 'Island Paradise' and that's where it takes its name from," said Brickman.

"I'm a huge fan. I go to every one of his concerts when he's here and I buy every one of his CD's," said one of Brickman's fans, Lynn Fujimoto of Hawaii Kai.

Brickman says 'Beautiful World' mirrors what's going on in the world today.

He says he wants it to be an antidote to people's stress, and hopes his new album offers a relaxing musical getaway.

And it looks like it's a hit. Right now, 'Beautiful World' is number one on the new age chart.
