International music legend Engelbert Humperdinck has been featured on The Island Now for his upcoming performance at the Theatre at Westbury this coming Saturday, September 9th. You can read some of The Island Now’s feature below, but be sure to visit theislandnow.com for more.
In a career spanning 50 years, Humperdinck has generated sales in excess of 140 million records, including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum, four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Las Vegas Walk of Fame and Leicester Walk of Fame. He has performed for the Queen four times, several presidents and many heads of state.
Now, as part of his 50th anniversary tour, Humperdinck will perform at the Theatre at Westbury this coming Saturday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m.
Humperdinck has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock and even gospel. His unique voice has charmed millions of fans around the globe, yet it’s not just the voice, but the man himself, with his endearing sense of humor and self-deprecating jokes. And he has managed to strike a chord with a younger generation after appearing on MTV several times.
His first single, “Release Me,” went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was No. 1 in 11 countries, and the song was re-released after being used for a UK national television commercial for John Smith’s beer. The following decades saw Humperdinck touring the world to sell-out crowds.
He takes great pleasure in every moment on stage, a place where he can lose his inhibitions and no longer be the child who was once shy. Humperdinck’s music has transcended time and his voice continues to touch people — serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and provoke feelings… ingredients that are no doubt the essence of his long-lasting success.
