I have been a Tony Bennett fan since the sixties. I did some research on Tony and I found out he marched with Harry Belafonte and Martin Luther King in Selma Alabama. He has been a civil rights advocate for years. He has performed over six decades. He is 91 and still performing concerts.
Tony Bennett is one of the most successful legendary jazz and popular musicians of our time. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide, is a published author, and a successful painter. Mr. Bennett has been inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame, and in 2002 received a lifetime achievement award from ASCAP.
He has won fifteen Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, and the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award.
