Tony Bennett is a 17-time Grammy Award-winning singer. His career kicked into high gear in 1949 when he was discovered by comedian Bob Hope, who christened him Tony Bennett - a play on his real name, Anthony Dominick Benedetto. In 1962, the crooner released his signature song, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." Over the course of his career, Bennett has released more than 50 studio albums and charted in every decade since the 1950s. He is also a two-time Emmy Award winner and a Kennedy Center honoree. On December 16, Bennett will release Tony Bennett Celebrates 90, a live album of his NBC special of the same name, airing December 20.
