Few pop singers can claim a popularity as enduring as Tony Bennett’s. His warm tenor is famous for its simplicity and emotional directness, as evidenced in his renditions of such hits as “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” “Rags to Riches” and “What a Good Life.” Bennett began his career performing in various New York clubs before being discovered in 1949 by Bob Hope.

During the ’50s, he recorded such songs as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches” and “Cold, Cold Heart.” In 1962, Bennett recorded his best known song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” and won the first of 17 Grammys.

Throughout his career, Bennett has reached out to new generations of fans by crossing over into different spheres of pop culture. He appeared on television shows, such as “The Simpsons” and the MTV Music Video Awards (alongside The Red Hot Chili Peppers). His career experienced a resurgence in the ’80s and ’90s thanks to a series of projects with singers including k.d. lang, Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole and Billy Joel.

Bennett has won 17 Grammy Awards (including a Lifetime Achievement Award, presented in 2001) and two Emmy Awards, and has been named an NEA Jazz Master and a Kennedy Center Honoree. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide. Now in his 80s, Bennett continues to tour the world for concerts and other engagements.
