A Living Legend


A singing waiter before 21

‘Because Of You’ became a No 1

That was way back in 1951

At 88, he scored another No 1


His first Grammy in 1962

‘I Left My Heart In San Francisco’ too

With others he has duet albums two

Each performance brings him ovations more than two


He’s so talented and so positive

In writing and painting he’s as active

His artistic focus is attractive

And learning to play jazz piano is not a whiff


He is simply ‘great, wow and fantastic’

At 90, he is still charismatic

Few others are just as enthusiastic

Each time he sings he brings with him so much magic


His live performances are full of fun

And his 10 million recordings have won

19 Grammys and more before it’s done

No other icon could take over his baton
