The 96-year-old legendary singer kept the diagnosis a secret since 2016. “We came home one night after a show, and he said to me, ‘Susan, you know, I can’t remember the musicians’ names,” tells Benedetto.
Bennett is most lucid when singing his classic songs and never forgets a single lyric, his wife said. During the coronavirus pandemic, Bennett has been recording concerts from home.
“As many miss out on weddings, anniversaries, and other celebrations this year, I wanted to give you all something special. One of my favorite ballads, Fly Me to the Moon. I hope this can serve as a reminder that love perseveres beyond everything”
