Tony Bennett (born Anthony Dominick Benedetto; August 3, 1926) is an American     
singer of popular music, standards and jazz. After having achieved artistic and   
commercial success in the 1950s and early 1960s, his career suffered an extended   
downturn during the height of the rock music era. Bennett staged a remarkable     
comeback, however, in the late 1980s and 1990s, expanding his audience to a       
younger generation while keeping his musical style intact. He remains a popular   
and critically praised recording artist and concert performer in the 2000s.       
Bennett is also a serious and accomplished painter.
