Engelbert Interview on Australia's Sunrise
Follow this link to the a clip from the interview:
On This Day: 25 Years Ago
Caring crooner Engelbert Humperdinck is backing the battle to save an old people's home from closure.
The international singing superstar turned up at De Montfort House, Narborough Road, Leicester, on Saturday, to show his support.
He said: "It is absolutely vital that this place stays open, because it provides such a marvellous service for the elderly.
"I've been really touched by the standard of care here. When you get old, you need expert help and the company of others in the same situation. Loneliness is a terrible thing."
De Montfort House, which caters for 51 residents, is one of four homes in Leicestershire that the County Council are considering closing down.
The council claims De Montfort, like the three others shortlisted, has a high level of vacancies, unsuitable accommodation, a bad location and is in a poor state of repair.
But Mrs Wendy Derbyshire, whose father lives at the home, said:
"We're determined to fight this all the way. My dad loves it here and doesn't want to move because of the friendly atmosphere."
She added that a decision will be taken on the home's future in November. Already a 600-strong petition has been handed to officials at County Hall.

Engelbert Humperdinck films at Westgate; tours Graceland presents ELVIS: THE EXHIBITION
Las Vegas Informer, July 23, 2015
Legendary international superstar Engelbert Humperdinck was at the Westgate for three days last week filming segments for a documentary being produced about his life and his 50-year career. The handsome entertainer with the golden voice, who still tours the world playing to sold-out crowds, filmed scenes on the stage of the main showroom, where he was a major headliner attraction for nearly a decade when the hotel was the Las Vegas Hilton.
Engelbert also toured Graceland presents ELVIS: THE EXHIBITION at the hotel and filmed a segment there as well. He and Elvis were good friends and they often attended each other’s shows and spent time together backstage. Elvis confided to his bodyguard that Engelbert was “like the twin brother he had lost at birth.” Indeed, the two bore a striking resemblance to each other and even dressed similarly on stage. But Engelbert had the unique hairstyle first- he came on the music scene and gained recognition with his unusual name and his long black sideburns, the latter of which Elvis “stole” from Engelbert, which Engelbert enjoys teasing about today. The tour of the museum was very nostalgic for him and he enjoyed it immensely.
Engelbert just returned from a tour of England, Israel, and Belgium and he heads to Chile next week to perform.
