Engelbert Humperdinck Returns To Mayo on April 18

Engelbert Humperdinck Returns To Mayo on April 18(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Longtime popular crooner Engelbert Humperdinck returns to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, April 18 at 7:30pm. In a career spanning almost 50 years, Engelbert Humperdinck 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.Tickets range from $49-$89.

Engelbert has performed for the Queen four times, several presidents and many heads of state. He 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 and self-deprecating jokes. Engelbert has managed to strike a new chord with a younger generation after appearing on MTV several times.

He exploded on to the music scene in the sixties with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. His sixties did not so much swing as rage. 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 No. 1 in 11 countries. The song was re-released after being used for a UK national television commercial for John Smith's beer.

The following decades saw Engelbert touring the world to sell-out crowds. Engelbert seems to take great pleasure in every moment on stage, a place where he can lose his inhibitions and no longer be the child who was once shy.

Engelbert's music has transcended time and his voice still continues to reach out to people now - serving to transport and inspire, to embrace and to provoke feelings and emotions.ingredients that are no doubt the essence of his long-lasting success.

An Interview With EmiSunshine

​​​​​​​EmiSunshine was only nine years old when a video captured her performing Jimmie Rodgers’ “Blue Yodel No. 6” at a flea market in Tennessee and went viral.  This led to an invitation to “The Today Show” that introduced her to the world.  Since then, she has released several albums featuring songs steeped in the sounds of Appalachia.  It’s rootsy, Americana music, that has found airplay far beyond traditional country radio stations.
