At 89 years old, Bennett isn’t one to rest – period. The word “retirement” just isn’t a part of his vocabulary. “No, retirement isn’t in my future,” Bennett said. “As long as I can do it, I will be performing.”
Bennett is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and now in the first two decades of the 21st century. He has introduced a multitude of songs into the Great American Songbook that have since become standards for pop music. He's released more than 70 albums and has won 18 GRAMMY Awards, including the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. It was for his 1962 song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" that he won his first GRAMMY, for best male solo vocal performance. In 2015, he and Lady Gaga took home the GRAMMY for best traditional pop vocal album.
Throughout his career, Bennett has always put his heart and time into humanitarian concerns. He has raised millions of dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, which established a research fund in his name. His original paintings grace the cover of the American Cancer Society’s annual holiday greeting card, proceeds from which are earmarked for cancer research. He is also active in environmental concerns and social justice. He marched with Dr. King in the historical Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights movement and the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta bestowed upon him their “Salute to Greatness Award” for his efforts in fighting racial discrimination.
