Tony Bennett came into this world in the early nineties in August of 1929 to be precise. His full name is Anthony Dominick Benedetto. He is a popular and much famous musician of American origin who gained considerable popularity and fame in the category of standards and jazz. He received considerable success in the years of fifties and sixties, when he made it big commercially. But things went awry and he faced a downfall at the height of his career in the late sixties. He took a break and staged a comeback in the eighties and also the nineties which led to the growth of his compositions and harmony to the new younger generation all the while keeping his signature style unharmed.
To date he is a much famous and a popular recording artist and also a live performer in the twenty first century where he is not only popular amongst the audience but is also praised and appreciated by the critics all over. Apart from his singing career he has also tried his luck and hand in the field of painting and has carved a niche for himself as a serious and a proficient painter.
As far as his personal life went he had been born to a mediocre family where his father was a grocer and his mother was a seamstress. His fathers health was already flailing when he came to the world and the family already had two other children, hence he grew up in much poverty as his dad was unable to continue working owing to his much poor health and he died when Tony was only ten years old.

His entry into the field of show business was aided by an uncle who was a tap dancer in vaudeville. When his father died at that time he was already singing and giving performances at the opening of the Triborough Bridge. Sketching remained a hobby and a passion tat he continued to indulge in side by side. He also attended the High School of Industrial Art which is located in New York. There he not only studied painting but also music, but this was all before he dropped out at the mere age of sixteen for helping and supporting his family financially. It was now that he thought seriously about taking up singing as a serious profession and performed as a singing waiter in numerous Italian restaurants.
Side by side his image and career as that of a serious painter kept to flourish. This was a hobby in the beginning which he pursued seriously later and availed the opportunity to take serious trainings and visitations to museums all through his life. Today it has kind of become an obsession and he takes joy in painting and sketching on a daily basis, even whilst he is on the run and on tours. He takes pleasure in painting all kinds of views and sceneries and exhibits his work under his own and not a syndicated name.
