“Wow, thank you to all my fans,” Mr. Bennett said in a video commemorating his record-breaking achievement,
Tony Bennett was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in Y 2016, which his family announced in an interview with AARP earlier this yr. He recorded “Love for Sale” 2 yrs with Lada Gaga, who immersed herself in jazz music before coming to the studio.
“I really put my nose in the ink – (meaning) the written music – and learned it letter for letter,” Gaga says. “Then when I went to the studio, I threw out the ink. I had sang (these songs) enough times by then to express myself and really feel it.
“Tony taught me that. He always says to go deeper and deeper, until I was finally just singing to him.” Lady Gaga
