Mid-Week Song

Celebrating his 85th birthday today is iconic popular singer Tony Bennett. Bennett's career, which began in the early '50s, was revived in the '80s and '90s as a new generation discovered the mellow, classic vocals that he's known for. Frank Sinatra called him "the best singer in the business." Some of his hits include the classic "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," "Rags to Riches," "Because of You," and "Cold Cold Heart." He's also a painter, a humanitarian, a winner of 15 Grammys and 2 Emmys, and a loyal Dem. Happy birthday!
