Veteran American singer, Tony Bennett is dead

Anthony Dominick Benedetto, better known by his stage name Tony Bennett, was a legendary American singer has been confirmed dead on Friday at the age of 96 in New York.

Tony, whose cause of death was not made public, was one of the last crooners to perform in America after a career spanning seven decades.

He has received numerous accolades over his career, including 20 Grammy Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award, and two Primetime Emmy Awards.

Tony, a 1926 Queens, New York native who attended high school in Manhattan, fell in love with music and drew inspiration from James Durante, Louis Armstrong, and Bing Crosby.

He served in the United States Army near the end of WWII and characterized his three months fighting along the front lines in France and Germany as a “front-row seat in hell.”

Tony received his big break in music in 1950 after returning to New York and changing his stage name from Joe Bari to Tony Bennett.
