Some of you may have seen Tony Bennett recently at the MTV Video & Music awards still sounding like a million bucks. What’s interesting is that Tony had his first hit on this day back in 1951. The song Because of You topped the charts and stayed there for 10 weeks.  This was the beginnings of what would be a long and wonderful career of one of the most distinguished jazz singers of our time.

Here’s a beautiful duet he did of this song with k.d. Lang…….
