To celebrate Tony Bennett‘s 94th birthday on Monday (August 3rd), a myriad of music business luminaries took the time to congratulate and thank the legendary singer for his contributions to culture.
The 18-time Grammy Award winner’s team put out a post on social media asking fans to send Tony their birthday wishes. “Happy 94th birthday to Tony Bennett!” the tweet read alongside a photo of the Italian-American star. “We would love to share your warm wishes with him today. Feel free to share your message here, and tell us which album you’re playing to celebrate! – Team Tony.” Big-time names like Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel chimed in to mark the big occasion per the following messages.
Though Bennett’s been laying low these past few years, the “Rags to Riches” singer participated in a sing-along in April in honor of those working on the front lines of the Corona Virus pandemic. Watch the performance below.
