Engelbert Humperdinck talks Christmas special, 'One World' single

October 30, 2020

By Markos Papadatos     Digital Journal October 29, 2020

Global music star Engelbert Humperdinck chatted with Digital Journal about his very first Christmas special on Looped, which will be held virtually on December 12.

On Saturday, December 12, 3 p.m. EST, Humperdinck's Livestream broadcast of his very first Christmas special will take place on Looped, which will be followed by a series of video meet and greet sessions. Looped is a remote venue where music listeners can connect with their favorite artists anytime and anywhere in the world. 

"This Livestream is a family show, really, because I have members of my family here, which is unusual but I need them for the show," he said. "My daughter's daughter is only 12, but she will be participating in the show as well. My granddaughter is totally unbelievable. Her talent is in the same category as Whitney Houston, even though she has her own style."

"I think people will like this show because it is in my own house and it's very intimate. It will be very nice and very family-oriented," he added. "This virtual concert is my only way to keep in touch with my fans for the time being."

Fans can join Engelbert Humperdinck live from his home in California for an evening of festive celebration and songs. This Livestream event will include performances of a selection of favorite holiday classics and new Christmas songs. This exclusive virtual private concert can be watched and enjoyed all over the world from one's digital devices.

The subsequent video meet and greets will be a special experience for fans in these socially distanced times, which will afford them the privilege to chat and interact directly with the living music icon himself. In an effort to receive this phone call, they will need to download the Looped mobile app on their cellphones, which is available in both the Apple and Android app stores. "We put out 100 meet and greets, and they sold out in six minutes," he said. "Then, we put another 100 out, so I will be busy for several hours doing those meet and greets, which are 90-second calls to people one-on-one. I am anxious to see the fans again someday in person."

On life during the quarantine, he said, "We have to do what we have to do. Of course, I am frustrated because I can't do what I love to do, and that's being out on the road. Life is too precious to take chances, and I haven't taken any chances. I abide by the laws of being quarantined, and I have been wearing masks."

He is optimistic and hopes that things will get better in the near future, hopefully even before the new year. "I hope that a vaccine will be found very soon," he said.

On the title of the current chapter of his life, Humperdinck said, "Hopeful."

He also spoke about his new song "One World," which is on his upcoming EP. "I hope the fans like my mini-album, which will be released along with the new single," he said. "The lyrics of 'One World' are very timely with what is going on in the world today and it talks about unity, peace, and love. We are all suffering from the same situation, and therefore, we should help each other to recover from this terrible situation."

"I've had many successes over the years, and having another hit song would be another bonus in my life, and hopefully, it will keep going for years to come," he concluded.

Performing Is My Lifeblood, Says Engelbert Ahead Of First Live Stream

July 22, 2020

“You need to keep in contact with your public,” says the entertainer, “and this is the one way of doing it.”

Published on July 22, 2020

By Paul Sexton UDiscoverMusic.com

 

Engelbert Humperdinck is preparing for his first-ever live stream, at noon PST tomorrow (July 23), in the knowledge that the at-home broadcast provides a lifeline to his audience. With much of his concert schedule inevitably postponed until 2021 amid pandemic concerns, “you need to keep in contact with your public,” he says, “and this is the one way of doing it.”

 

The veteran entertainer, now 84, has been singing for well over 65 years and, by this stage of the year, would normally be scores of concerts into his energetic and global performing schedule. But while that’s not possible, he will be taking to a small studio in his Los Angeles home, singing live to track as an engineer sits at a safe distance, relaying him to the world via his YouTube channel.

In a new conversation with uDiscover Music, Humperdinck has been talking about the Engelbert Live stream, life at home and his plans to get back into the road and the recording studio. In one perhaps unexpected development, he reveals, he’s been able to catch up on his do-it-yourself skills.

Global star, home decorator

“It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever spent so much time at home,” he says. “It’s a financial disaster [for everyone], but what can you do? I’ll be honest with you, it’s given me a chance to do some things at home. I did some decorating of different rooms in the house.”

Even before the coronavirus outbreak, much of the singer’s time was spent caring for his wife Patricia, who has had Alzheimer’s disease for more than a decade. The couple celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary in April. With no touring commitments, he says, “I’m able to drive my wife to the clinic three times a week, instead of the carers doing it. I’ve got to spend time with her and she seems to be doing well, [with] the fact that I’m around.”

Engelbert will be in his virtual chatroom to “meet” with his loyal, worldwide fan base both before and after the hour-long show. “I’ve been in preparation for it, I’ve done a couple of tests so far and it’s been amazing,” he says. “The last test, a few days ago, a thousand people or more casually dropped in. They asked questions and I answered them, and it’s quite fun [with] all the various countries that drop in, from all over the world.”

An unexpected positive of lockdown, he says, has been the chance to take stock. “It’s given me a chance to really do some thinking about my show. Prior to that, everything had been quick, trying to put things together. But I’ve had time to ponder it and I think it’ll be a lot better now, with the preparation I’m doing.”

“I’ve chosen different material”

The Engelbert Live audience can still expect to hear his trademark songs, but punctuated by some more unusual selections. “I’ve chosen different material that’s going to be much more interesting to my audience, besides doing all the stuff that I’ve been fortunate enough to have hits with,” he says. “If you make it interesting for yourself, they will find it interesting.”

Like many seasoned vocalists, he knows that he must keep his voice supple. “At home,” he notes, “all I do is I put my Bluetooth speaker up with music in it and practice with [the songs], keeping the voice going. It’s a muscle, you’ve got to keep it moving.”

Humperdinck has also been “keeping up with the times,” as he puts it. “I try to watch the new talent programmes like The Voice and things like that, because the young people that sing are usually singing current songs, or good material in order to get voted on. So I watch these shows and see what’s happening. Quite interesting.”

Born in Madras in then-British India, he was raised in Leicester in the English midlands, and is painfully aware that the city has lately been in an enforced local lockdown, with coronavirus infections running well beyond the national average. “It’s been hit hard,” he says.

“It’s so upsetting that I can’t do concerts”

“When this all first happened, I was very fastidious in the way I conducted myself, but people are not paying attention to it, and that’s one of the reasons it’s building, instead of going back down. I certainly miss coming home. It’s so upsetting that I can’t come over and visit my home in England and my family, and I can’t do concerts.”

After the streaming show, he will resume development of his next album project, and is continuing to find material for it. “I’m in the process of doing a song that’s very current, lyrically,” he reveals. “I think it’s going to be a good one. It was written many years ago, but it seems to have come to the foreground with the conditions now.”

“When are you coming back to Tahiti?”

For now, while the streaming experience is new to him, it’s an exciting opportunity to connect with audiences, albeit from a distance. “When I’m reading the comments on the test run, people say ‘When are you coming back to Tahiti, or South Africa, or Australia, New Zealand, Germany?’ All these places,” he enthuses. “It’s so wonderful to know that people still want you to come to their particular part of the world.

“There’s lots and lots of countries I haven’t been to,” he concludes. “In May, I was supposed to go to a lot of places and we’ve had to rebook for the new year. I’m ready, I’m chomping at the bit. I can’t wait to get back on stage. It’s my lifeblood.”

Engelbert Live starts at noon PST on July 23 on the artist’s YouTube channel

MUSIC PICK (LIVESTREAMING): ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK

July 22, 2020

BRETT CALLWOOD JULY 22, 2020, LA Weekly

Now 84, English balladeer Engelbert Humperdinck has been enjoying a bit of a renaissance of late, or at least he was pre-COVID. But the man best known for soaring ballads like “Release Me” and “The Last Waltz” isn’t going to let a pandemic stop him. His Engelbert Live livestream will see him engage in a 15 minute Q&A, then perform nine songs, then another Q&A. There’s no stopping him.

“My music and my fans are my lifeblood, and I miss performing and that special connection more than you can imagine,” he told us. “I think it’s apparent in my musing on FB (#Tuesdaymuseday} and my flashbacks on YouTube on Fridays, so I’m reaching out to LA Weekly readers and fans around the world to invite them to a musical ‘Moment In Time’ and see where it takes us.

Every night on the road I’d stroll down memory lane with songs that have touched my heart and found a spot in my life story. I hear so often of how many of these beautifully-crafted songs relate to others’ lives and take on their own meaning, but when you can sing them every night for over 53 years and they still tug at and comfort this old heart, I feel I need to keep sharing. So I want to celebrate the gift of music together and share our stories of where words and melody fit into your tapestry of life.

A good example for me would be how my song “The Last Waltz” seemed as though someone was recording the every move of my first meeting with my wife Patricia at a dance hall. We didn’t want that last dance to be over and saying goodbye until our first date was a memory I shall never forget.  I’ve heard others relate as if they had walked in my spit-shined shoes on that evening at the Palais De Dans.

Tell a friend, invite people you know from faraway places, as the distance is the same for all who attend! Join me and let’s reminisce and as the song says…. ‘The last waltz should last forever’.”

Tune in at noon PT on Thursday, July 23 via Youtube.
