It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing: Tony Bennett turns 89 today. He’s just finishing his long our with Lady Gaga after their hit album “Cheek to Cheek” set records. If you caught the tour– I saw them at Radio City in June– you know that Tony starts his 90th year like a pro. His voice is intact, a Wonder of the World. But also, Tony gets high marks for his unwavering commitment to social causes. He was there with Martin Luther King, and he’s still there today with his Frank Sinatra School in Queens and his foundation Exploring the Arts (exploringthearts.org).
All hail the timeless and legendary Tony Bennett!
