Some things never go out of style, in fact--they just get cooler with age, case in point, 82 year-old legendary singer, Engelbert Humperdinck, otherwise known as Arnold George Dorsey.
Best known, for hits such as "Quando, Quando, Quando," "After the Lovin'" and " Release Me" which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts, being # 1 in 11 countries (preventing The Beatles from having their 13th consecutive #1 hit in 1967) this legend is still going strong, most recently releasing his latest, Warmest Christmas Wishes.
In a career spanning more than 50 years, Engelbert has sold more than 140 million records, with 64 going gold, 23 platinum, four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe, and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Las Vegas Walk of Fame.
He has performed for the Queen four times and many heads of state. He has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock and even gospel.
The youngest of ten children originally from England, he grew up in India, where his father was stationed during World War II. Family was his foundation and still is, married to the same woman for 54 years.
Recently, you may have heard one of his old songs in the movie Game Night or his latest Bruno Mars rendition of "Just The Way You Are" off his recent "The Man I Want To Be" album.
His latest release, a holiday album, entitled Warmest Christmas Wishes is out this week.
We sat down with the icon, at the LifeMinute studios in Times Square last week, to hear all about this and some things that no one knows, such as the fact that he is shy, which comes as a shock to anyone who sees him sway on stage for his swooning and adoring crowd.
