Engelbert Humperdinck Featured In The Columbus Dispatch
Engelbert Humperdinck was featured in an article for The Columbus Dispatch. The article discusses Engelbert Calling, which is Engelbert Humperdinck’s first ever duets album, and his North American tour. The article also gets fans excited for Engelbert Humperdinck’s performance on May 10 at the Hard Rock Rocksino at Northfield Park in the village of Northfield, Ohio.
Engelbert Calling is Engelbert Humperdinck’s first venture into recorded duets; the CD includes “Something About the Way You Look Tonight” with Elton John, “Release Me” with Wynonna Judd and “Spinning Wheel” with Gene Simmons. Humperdinck also works with Charles Aznavour, Willie Nelson and Dionne Warwick. “To have been in the same studio working with these people who are giants has given me a new life, fresh blood,” says Humperdinck.
The article also discusses what triggered the feud between himself and Tom Jones.
My manager was very partial to Tom,” Humperdinck recalled, “and I got upset about that and decided to leave the company. It cost me millions and millions and millions of dollars. I had to remake everything.
Although, Engelbert Humperdinck has had his feuds and controversial times, he always remained humble which has led him to become very successful.
What made me successful was the combination of changing my name, dyeing my hair and growing my sideburns,” he said, “and getting a song that was so universally appealing. With all those put together, I scored very heavily — and thank God for that.”
Engelbert Humperdinck is currently on tour in support of his latest album Engelbert Calling. For information about his North American tour, please visit Engelbert.com
