Bennett’s long list of achievements, spanning 60 years, includes 18 Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, making this artist an international treasure. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” form part of the fabric of American music culture.

In 2014, Bennett released a collaborative album with Lady Gaga, “Cheek to Cheek,” featuring these two legendary artists performing jazz standards. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Album charts, making Bennett the oldest musical artist, at the age of 88, to have an album top the Billboard 200, and it won the Grammy Award in the Best Traditional Pop Album category.
