Tony BennettThe famous singer and songwriter of several American songs is dead…
Sylvia Weiner confirmed to Related Press that Tony died on Friday at his home in New York Metropolis. Although there is no explanation for the death, Tony battled Alzheimer’s disease… his illness in 2016.
Tony created the likes of American rock with timeless hits like his 1962 classic, “I Left My Life in San Francisco,” and, over time, gained a large following and admirers in the music business… Frank Sinatra to Girl Gaga.
He released more than 70 albums in a career that spanned 7 years and earned him 19 Grammys. Most recently, he recorded, performed and toured with Girl Gaga…whom he admires, personally and professionally.
The truth is, his last public appearance came with Gaga at the Radio Metropolis Music Corridor in August 2021, two months before the last set, Bennett-Gaga launched “Love For Sale,” the follow-up to their top 2014 collaboration “Cheek to Cheek.”
The album helped him break records as he is the oldest artist to have a number 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. He was 88 years old at the time.
– Three years earlier, he topped the charts with “Duets II,” featuring contemporary stars such as Gaga, Carrie Underwood and Amy Winehousein his last painting
His relationship with Winehouse was captured in the Oscar-nominated documentary “Amy,” which convinced Bennett to patiently encourage the vulnerable singer in the masterful “Physique and Soul.”
Despite his medical problems, Tony continued to perform and film until 2021.
