Yes.  Frank Sinatra once said he had "the best pipes in the business."

Tony Bennett is the only one left.

 

I remember sitting at a table in a pizza place we used to go to for lunch, I was in Junior High, and he was singing "Rags to Riches" via the juke box.

 

I am now 80 and he's still going strong.

My Mom used to play Vic Damone's albums all the time. Her favorite singers were Vic Damone and Mario Lanza. So we would hear them frequently.

He had a beautiful voice.


OMG, I loved Mario Lanka.  Still have his 78 vinyl.  Your Mom must be around my age.


I make sure I watch all Mario Lanza's movies - there aren't that many. The Student Prince was on TCM last week. He wasn't on but at least he sang all the songs. I still like listening to both of them.

My Mom would have been 100 next year. Her brother lived to be a lively and bright 100 year old man but unfortunately she did not.
