With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, Tony Bennett is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements includes 17 Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, making this artist a true international treasure. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” form part of the fabric of American music culture. Often billed as the world’s most boyish octogenarian, Mr. Bennett is a vital musical artist at the peak of his powers.
When he released the popular CD Duets II in 2011, he made musical history by being the oldest artist ever to have a Number One CD on the BillBoard album charts. Produced by Phil Ramone, the CD featured duets with Lady Gaga, Michael Bublé, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and the late Amy Winehouse.
