||Barry Manilow Talks About His Final Tour
ABC 4 Utah: Barry Manilow is one of popular music's most recognizable voices, a master artist behind some of the best american standards of the last 40 years. He has sold 80 million records, been inducted into the songwriters hall of fame, and won about every major award in the entertainment space including the Emmy, the Tony, Grammy, an Oscar nominee. Manilow has even won a Cleo. He is also a great producer and arranger. Now, the legendary star is about to embark on one last adventure -- his final tour. This year marks the 40th anniversary of his number one hit "Mandy." "Mandy" was brought to Manilow by Clive Davis. Barry originally didn't want to record it because he did not write it, but the song put him on the map. His portfolio sports many platinum records, including "2:00 AM Paradise Cafe," which is one of the hidden classic albums of the last 30 plus years. Manilow’s most recognizable song is probably "Copacabana," which he co-wrote and has become a pop culture touchstone having spanned three generations. Barry will be performing in Salt Lake City at the [Maverik] Center on April 20th.
