The legendary voice who brought us such hits as “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”, Tony Bennett, has died at the age of 96.

In his lifetime Bennett released over 70 albums, won 19 Grammys, and his last album was a duet album in 2021 with Lady Gaga called “Love for Sale”

Bennett was admired by his peers for many generations including Frank Sinatra who said of Bennett “For my money, Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business.  He excited me when I watch him”

RIP to Tony Bennett!
