American singer Tony Bennett has Alzheimer’s disease, his entourage revealed in an article published on the AARP site Monday. However he was able to record with the album Lady Gaga, which will be released soon.
The most persistent coroner in American song, now 94, was first diagnosed in 2016, but did not show the most severe symptoms of the disease at this time.
His instant memory is failing and he sometimes has trouble understanding where he is, but he is able to recognize and communicate with those around him, even if he can no longer give a real interview, according to those around him.
Although diagnosed four years earlier, it also occurred last year, until the pandemic forced to stop it in early March. A break that contributes to the deterioration of his health, said one of his doctors.
During the extended sessions between 2018 and 2020, Tony Bennett recorded his second album with American singer Lady Gaga, following the success of “Cheek to Cheek” (2014), a series of duet covers.
The journalist who came to meet Tony Bennett and his entourage at his home last November was also able to observe the standards of singing with his general comfort and admiration along with his tutor.
The singer and his entourage granted this interview to discuss life with Alzheimer’s disease, choosing the venue of the Association of Retired AARP, which brings together millions of seniors.
“Life is a gift, even with Alzheimer’s,” Tony Bennett tweeted Monday after the account article was published.
Famous for many successes such as “Because of You” in the early 1950s, Queens Kruner resumed her career completely from the mid-1990s.
It was the duets with pop figures that made him known to new generations, as well as his epic theatrical presence.
