“If you follow your passion, you'll never work a day in your life.”
 Paul McCartney
When Tony Bennett performed his final concerts in 2021 at age 95, he went out with a bang.
Bennett sprung to life during the performances alongside Lady Gaga, leaving his heart on the stage of Radio City Music Hall.
The amazing showmanship was a testament to his lifelong talent and love for music, which sprang forth some 70 years earlier when the WWII veteran had his first hit with 1951’s Because of You.
With 50 million records sold, 19 Grammy Awards (including a 2001 lifetime achievement award) and two Emmys, Bennett brought the Great American Songbook to a whole new generation. His career enjoyed a renaissance in the mid-’90s and his MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett won a Grammy for 1994’s Best Album of the Year.
