With millions of records sold worldwide and platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett has received 17 Grammy Awards – including a 1995 Grammy for Record of the year for his “MTV Unplugged” CD, which introduced this American master to a whole new generation – and the Grammy Lifetime Award. His 2007 prime-time special, “Tony Bennett: An American Classic,” won seven Emmy Awards. His long list of chart-topping hits includes “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and a remake Hank Williams “Cold, Cold Heart.” He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)” and his signature song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” which garnered him two Grammy Awards.
