On the morning of July 21st, 2023, it was announced that the music icon Tony Bennett had passed away. Bennett was a class act and timeless asset to the legacy of jazz and music as a whole.
As a twenty-time Grammy Award winner, Bennett was synonymous with greatness. He truly defined what it meant to dedicate your life to your craft. After serving in World War II, Bennett began his career as a jazz singer. His talent would go on to be celebrated for decades to come.
Tony Bennett met Lady Gaga in 2011 when they recorded their first duet “The Lady is a Tramp.” They then created their first album together, Cheek to Cheek. It won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the Grammys. Their second and final record, Love For Sale, won the same award, and received nominations for Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year.
Tony will be remembered for generations to come. We will always be grateful for his gift to the world: music. Rest in peace, Mr. Bennett.
