Renowned musical legend Tony Bennett, celebrated for his velvety voice and beloved music, passed away on Friday at the age of 96.
The iconic singer died in his hometown of New York, just two weeks before his birthday, as confirmed by Bennett’s publicist Sylvia Weiner to AP.
Weiner stated that the cause of death was not specified.
In 2016, Bennett was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, a fact that his wife, Susan Bennett, shared with AARP Magazine, saying, “There’s a lot about him that I miss. Because he’s not the old Tony anymore… But when he sings, he’s the old Tony.”
One of Bennett’s many admirers was Lady Gaga, with whom he released the album “Love for Sale” in 2021.
Gaga expressed her deep connection to Bennett during one of their performances, saying to the crowd, “He’s my friend. He’s my musical companion. And he’s the greatest singer in the whole world. And I’m counting on you, New York, to make him smile. So you better cheer. You better yell. You better laugh. You better cry. You better give your soul.”
Gaga stood by Bennett during his final performances at Radio City Music Hall in August 2021. However, due to declining health, he had to step back from performing.
