Tony Bennett’s health: The legendary singer, 95, ‘had no idea’ he has a degenerative condition.

Tony Bennett is a jazz and big band singer from the United States who has sold over 50 million records worldwide. At 95, the artist just broke the Guinness World Record for the oldest individual to record an album of new songs. Perhaps more impressively, Bennett worked until August 2021, despite being diagnosed with a degenerative condition.

The singer, who has won 19 Grammy Awards, initially reached the charts in 1951 with his hit song Because of You. Eleven years later, he recorded his hallmark song, I Left My Heart in San Francisco.
