Tony Bennett

Since he began performing as a singing waiter in New York at age 13, his classic
style, tuxedo and Great American Songbook, have been staples in our music scene for more
than half a century. Bennett has sold more than 50 million records worldwide, received 16
Grammy Awards, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and won two Emmy
Awards. He also has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has been inducted into the Big
Band and Jazz Hall of Fame, was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American
Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, and is a Kennedy Center Honoree. The now 87-
year-old Bennett is still going strong with a new tour that will cover Europe and the U.S.
