Legendary entertainer and singer of love songs, Engelbert Humperdinck is unstoppable. He was seen going toe-to-toe at the 2012 Eurovision Song contest in Baku, Azerbaijan, as representing the United Kingdom, with the beautiful ballad “Love Will Set You Free” and heading straight for the finals, proving that age is nothing but a number. In Engelbert’s case, he is 76 going on 20. And a voice as everlasting as his hit songs: “Release Me,” “After the Lovin’,” ”The Last Waltz,” “A Man Without Love.”
Born Arnold George Dorsey, on 2 May 1936 in Madras, India, his stage name Engelbert Humperdinck comes from the 1911 century, Austrian composer who wrote “Hansel & Gretel.” His voice, most of his fans will agree, comes from heaven, with a stellar career spanning over forty years, selling 150 million records, worldwide.
Engelbert has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to the platinum-selling theme song “Lesbian Seagull” for the “Beavis and Butthead Do America” movie (1996), making him a cross-generational entertainer with a wide spectrum of fans.
In 1999 he recorded The Dance Album as his first album in the dance genre. It featured newly recorded dance versions of six of Engelbert’s greatest hits, plus five original songs. Favorites such as “Quando, Quando, Quando” and “Release Me” reworked by dance producer and remixers Chris Cox and Barry Harris (aka: Thunderpuss 2000). The album was a runaway hit with “Release Me” hitting Top Ten on the Billboard Dance charts.
