It was so heartening to see new generations ‘discover’ Mr. Bennett after he had been left for dead during the 1970’s and 80’s. To see him do an ‘ Unplugged’ on MTV during the 90’s….

Whew. Tony Bennett.
I have long admired your impeccable voice. It never lied. It never faltered even once, much like your character.
Rest well, amazing man. 🕊️ pic.twitter.com/AuXETIi8NB

Adios, Tony Bennett, who was demoted for having dinner with a Black friend in the military, who hunted Nazis and helped liberate Dachau prisoners, who marched with MLK, who promoted Black musicians in the 1950s and 60s, and who happened to also be an incredible singer and artist.
