I have written about Tony Bennett before, but I need to write about him again.
It’s August 2014, and Tony has just turned 88 (I am, of course, very proud that I share my birthday with him in the month of August, as I do with Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Shania Twain).
I recently bought his book, Life is a Gift. It is a wonderful, inspiring read. In my opinion, anybody who is still singing and performing at the age of 88, after a 60-year career in music, is worthy of emulation and study. I hope that when I am 88 I will still be performing and singing, wherever, whenever.
