Tony Bennett Has Passed

Tony Bennett has died. He was 96 and entertained us for decades with his fantastic voice, sense of humor, and immense talent. Bennett disclosed he had been battling Alzheimer's for some time in 2021. Other writers have summed up Bennett's life much better than I ever could, so I just thought I'd say what my favorite song by him happens to be. It is actually a cover, funnily enough. Bennett's version of, "Fly Me to the Moon," takes a generally upbeat and peppy tune and turns it into a beautifully reflective and yearning song. Give it a listen:

An amazing person. He will be missed.
