Like all great icons, Engelbert Humperdinck is a man of great depth – masculine and loving, shy inside and uninhibited onstage, prepared to play the sex god to the hilt and still, at this stage of his career, managing to get away with it. In a career spanning almost 50 years, Engelbert has generated sales in excess of 140 million records, including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum, four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Las Vegas Walk of Fame and Leicester Walk of Fame. He has performed for the Queen, several presidents and many heads of state.
Engelbert has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock and even gospel. His unique voice has charmed millions of fans around the globe. However, it’s not just the voice, but the man himself, with his endearing sense of humor. Engelbert has managed to strike a new chord with a younger generation after appearing on MTV several times.
Engelbert exploded onto the music scene in the sixties with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The shy, handsome boy catapulted almost instantly to world icon. He became great friends with Elvis Presley, and the two legends often performed each other’s songs. His first single in the charts was “Release Me,” which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was number one in 11 countries. The song was re-released after being used for a UK television commercial for John Smith’s beer.
The following decades saw Engelbert touring the world to sell-out crowds. Engelbert takes great pleasure in every moment on stage, a place where he can lose his inhibitions. Engelbert’s music has transcended time and his voice still continues to reach out to people, serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and to provoke feelings and emotions.
