Tony Bennett’s life and philosophy is the embodiment of the Great American Story. Having celebrated his 93rd birthday on August 3rd 2019, his career as the pre-eminent singer of the 20th and 21st centuries is unprecedented. He continues to be embraced and loved by audiences of all generations.
In the new millennium, Bennett’s artistry and popularity was higher than ever and he has sold over 10 million albums in the last 10 years alone. In 2006, the year of his 80th birthday, his Duets: An American Classic was released. In celebration of his 85th birthday in 2011 the release of Bennett’s, Duets II debuted at #1 on the Billboard Album charts, making Tony the only artist at the age of 85 to achieve this in the history of recorded music. Tony’s collaborative jazz album with Lady Gaga, released in 2014, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek To Cheek, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts making Bennett, at the age of 88, the oldest artists to have a #1 album…breaking his own previously established historical record. His latest album, with Diana Krall, titled Love Is Here To Stay, celebrates the music of George and Ira Gershwin.
A visual artist all his life, Tony has exhibited his artwork in museums and galleries around the world and three of his paintings are part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institute. He has authored six books, including his most recent, “Tony Bennett: On Stage and In The Studio.”
