For four years, the legendary singer and his family have kept his secret. Now, they’re breaking their silence, Tony Bennett has Alzheimer’s disease, his wife Susan Benedetto revealed. The 94-year-old legendary singer has kept the diagnosis under wraps since 2016. “We came home one night after a show and said to me, ‘Susan, you know, I can’t remember the musicians’ names,’” Benedetto said. 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”
Regardless of his age, Tony Bennett is still an amazing musician and enjoys singing. Sure a persons vocals change with age, however Tony is definitely a seasoned musician and for that alone he deserves respect. Thank you Tony for the great music over the many years.God loves you Tony and thanks for that!
