Tony Bennett keeps banging out the hits at 85
Bennett, who has had a long and illustrious career, from jamming with one of the greatest singers the world has ever known – Frank Sinatra – to singing alongside contemporary greats – like the late Amy Winehouse - becomes the oldest person to achieve such a feat.
The previous record was held by the legendary Bob Dylan. At the age of 67, the folk singer-songwriter topped the charts with his album Together Through Life.
His album Duets II, which features Winehosue, vocal powerhouse Mariah Carey and queen of weird Lady Gaga, sold 179,000 in its first week alone.
The easy listening superstar, whose career stretches an astonishing 60 years, first came to fame in the 1950s. He has since gone on to win 14 Grammy Awards and is a cultural icon in the States.
"She was a true talent, and she was on her way to becoming a very, very important jazz singer. What a tragedy. It's heartbreaking," Bennett said after hearing of the singer's death."
