Engelbert Humperdinck – You’re The First, The Last, My Everything

August 30, 2022

Riding a new wave of popularity, iconic singer Engelbert Humperdinck surprises fans with a brand new single: ‘You’re The First, The Last, My Everything’.

Music fans old and new have re-discovered one of England’s greatest singers of all time, Engelbert Humperdinck and are loving what they found. Thanks to massive awareness created by the use of some of his classic hits on uber-popular TV shows like Moon Knight‘A Man Without Love’ and Umbrella Academy ‘Quando, Quando, Quando’, the indomitable 86 year young Leicester boy (as the Queen calls him) finds himself at the centre of attention once again. Having a newly recorded version of West Ham United’s football anthem ‘Forever Blowing Bubbles’ in Brad Pitt’s current No.1 runaway hit movie ‘Bullet Train’ hasn’t hurt either.

Not one to rest on his laurels Engelbert is determined to show fans some new tricks with a new album he is recording for release later this year. To give fans a taste he is showing off a new side of himself with the release of a brand-new single – “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything” is his first official single in years. If the title sounds familiar it should be. The song was a UK No.1 record for soul legend Barry White in 1974. This may sound like an unusual choice for a singer better known for his ballads and waltzes, but you’ll be even more shocked by the novel treatment Engelbert has given this classic.

Engelbert has turned the song into a Country Line Dance Hit that is instantly infectious and makes you smile and immediately want to head to the dance floor. Given that some of Engelbert’s greatest hits have all had roots in Country music: ‘Release Me’, ‘There Goes My Everything’, ‘Am I That Easy To Forget’, his love for it shouldn’t be a surprise. With his new single though he takes things to another level and delivers a worthy successor to Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Achy Breaky Heart’. To top it off he has filmed a fun music video, one of only a handful in his career, that shows him performing the song at the Cowboy Palace Saloon – an authentic Honky Tonk Club in California.

The man doesn’t let grass grow under his feet. Currently, he is on a South East Asian tour, a warm up for his extended touring activities in the USA throughout the fall. He is making up for time lost to the pandemic and is determined to give fans every chance to see him Live in person in his element. Nothing could express his love for his fans and their love for him better than the title of the song ‘You’re The First, The Last, My Everything’!

Engelbert Humperdinck Talks TikTok, ‘Moon Knight’ Synch and the One Thing His Pal Elvis Stole From Him

August 26, 2022

The 86-year-old vocal pop pro is readying a new album while looking back on the stops and starts of his lengthy career.

By Joe Lynch  08/26/2022 Billboard

Earlier this year, Marvel’s Oscar Isaac-starring Moon Knight series premiered with an episode prominently featuring Engelbert Humperdinck’s 1968 top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, “A Man Without Love (Quando m’innamoro)” But for the British pop veteran, a more apt moniker might be “A Man Without Age.”

At 86, Humperdinck – born Arnold George Dorsey in India – retains his attentive amiability, his humor, a full head of hair and a busy global touring schedule. Speaking to Billboard over Zoom, Humperdinck gamely walks us through the wall behind him, which is covered in pieces commemorating the highs and lows from a career that dates back to the late ’50s — everything from certificates of honorary citizenship to painfully inadequate royalty checks from his pre-fame career, all of which he presents with a genial laugh.

Incredibly, Humperdinck’s vocal abilities have remained as robust as his hair through the years, which his new video — “You’re the First, The Last, My Everything,” a country-tinged version of the Barry White single from 1974 – testifies to. A preview of his upcoming album, the single speaks volumes about the quality of his pipes. That being said, Humperdinck doesn’t have any secrets to vocal cord longevity – or at the very least, he’s not sharing them. “I haven’t had a singing lesson in my life. The only music I ever studied was at the beginning of my life when I studied the saxophone, when I thought I wanted to be a saxophone player. That didn’t turn out; this one took over,” he says, pointing to his throat. “I’m happy it did.”

As he readies a new album, the traditionalist pop pro talked to Billboard about the ups and downs of his remarkable career, meeting the power couple who put his music in Moon Knight and his friendship with Elvis Presley during their respective Las Vegas residencies — not to mention the one thing his pal Elvis kinda-sorta stole from him.

Let’s rewind all the way back. Who were the singers you looked up to growing up?

Nat King Cole was one of them. I like the way he took a lyric and caressed it and made it his own. Actually, one of the first records I ever bought was for my girlfriend at the time, who turned out to be my wife, and it was “When I Fall In Love” by Nat King Cole.

When you listened to it, did you ever think, “I can do that.” Did you study his technique?

No. I never thought in that fashion. But I think beginners are subject to stealing from the best and using it to their own style, to get their style going a bit, to have a voice. My voice was ordinary at the beginning – you needed to develop it. And if you want to know how to develop it, you listen to others.

Speaking of that, you recorded under the name Gerry Dorsey for several years without hitting it big. What do you attribute that to – the wrong songs?

They were learning pages of my life. None of them were hits, obviously. None made it. To tell you the truth, what happened was I was down and out, in the pocket, didn’t have any money, and I went to my recording management and said, “Do you think you can give me an advance on my royalties?” He said, “You don’t have any.” I’ve got a check here, I’ll show you [picks up framed check]. This is one of my first royalties under my other name and it’s for five shillings and ten pence. In those days it would have been a couple of bucks. [laughs] I couldn’t survive on that.

Did you ever think about giving up?

No, I’m a go-getter and I never take no for an answer. The first condition of communication is the willingness to take rejection. And I took rejection many times. I auditioned so many places and I always heard the famous words, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you.” And they never do. I went through all that in my early life and it didn’t discourage me one bit. I just carried on knocking on doors.

When you adopted the name Engelbert Humperdinck and recorded your version of “Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)” in 1967, did it feel different? Did you know it would break through?

I felt it before I recorded it. Gordon Mills, who was manager at the time, was looking for a particular song for me to make my step in show business, and he found it on an instrumental by Frank Weir, who was a great soprano sax. I heard the melody and I loved it. I told him to find the lyric, we put it together and I played around with the song for a little while. I found an amazing key change we could use, I gave it to the arranger, Charles Blackwell, and he did an amazing arrangement which started my life. But not immediately. When we finally recorded the song “Release Me” and I heard the playback, I said to the people around me, “I’m gonna put my foot in my mouth, but I think this is a hit. I say it myself, I think it’s a hit.” It had all the qualities – a great arrangement, a great storyline – you needed to make a hit happen at the time. But it didn’t become a hit immediately. It sat on the shelf for three months, and this made me a little despondent until I got on a TV show called Sunday Night at the London Palladium. I went out there, I did my thing, sang three numbers and the last was “Release Me.” The very next day we started getting orders of 80,000 a day, 90,000 a day, and it went up to 127,000 a day. I know: I used to call up everybody and ask, “what did we do today?” That’s the excitement I had in the early part in my life when “Release Me” stepped into it.

So you followed the charts pretty closely?

Oh yes, I did. This one stayed on the charts for six weeks at No. 1 [in the U.K.] and it stopped the Beatles from having their 12th No. 1 with “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane.” I’m a big Beatles fan but nobody came along and stopped the almighty Beatles from No. 1.

Some of your masters were lost in the 2008 Universal vault fire. Did they ever reach out to tell you which ones were lost?

I don’t own my masters, I never owned them. It was Decca, Universal who owned it then. They had no business to talk to me about it. It’s theirs. But I was concerned, I wish they would have told me which ones.

Your 1968 hit “A Man Without Love” recently got a huge synch in the Marvel series Moon Knight. Was that a big surprise?

Massive, massive surprise. I’ll tell you the story of how I made “A Man Without Love.” I was playing the London Palladium and my manager said, “after the show we’re going to go to the studio and do this song that we hope will be your next single.” So we went down to the studio and I recorded it with a hand mic, it was the first I ever did with a hand mic, and it became a hit [No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the U.K. singles chart]. To think that all these years later it goes to No. 1 on… what chart, Shazam? And it did (re-)enter the Billboard charts, didn’t it?

Yes, it went No. 1 on Top TV Songs chart.

To this that all these years later it would come back into my life and cause a big stir, it’s amazing. You create a new audience with this Marvel show. And I had the pleasure of meeting the two people who thought about putting this song in the show in the first place. It’s a young lady who is from Egypt, Sarah Goher, and her husband Mohamed [Diab]. I had the pleasure of sitting down to a meal with them, and I got to know them quite well and I thanked them so sincerely for making this happen for me. She’s pretty much responsible for a lot of that music in the series. When she was young she used to listen to my music. She [said] it was like “music from the heavens.” She’s a very interesting lady to talk to and her husband is a brilliant man who directed the series. It’s an Italian melody. The lyric is from friend of mine, Barry Mason, who is no longer with us, he died a few months ago, which is sad to lose a talent like that. He’s responsible for songs like “The Last Waltz,” which is played in dance halls around the world. Les Reed and Barry Mason were two writers in my early years who did music like “Les Bicyclettes de Belsize,” “Love Is All,” many, many hits for me. I owe my early life and success to both of those wonderful people who are no longer with us anymore.

Do you have a good sense of what will be a hit or not?

You always get surprised when your song is a hit. I’ve had songs that didn’t make it and it’s very hurtful. You put all this work into it and there’s all these talented people that get involved and nothing happens. But that’s life; it’s a needle in a haystack.

Do you have any career regrets?

I had a good run. The only thing I really regret is the fact that in the early years I would have liked a more rounded career of being in the movies and things like that. I didn’t realize that my manager at the time wanted to keep his stable – his stable consisted of Tom Jones, Gilbert O’Sullivan and myself – he wanted to keep us on the road because it’s more capital in the company. That was his choice. I would have liked to be in show business because I consider myself a thespian of song. When I’m onstage I try to relate [to the song] as if it was a script I’m reading.

I can absolutely see that. You certainly have a thespian quality as you’re delivering your songs.

I was a bit of a dreamer. I thought to myself, “maybe if I start getting physical training, like martial arts, they might choose me as a James Bond.” And I did do martial arts – and it kept me in good shape – but I didn’t get the movies. I enjoy the early James Bond because it was tongue in cheek. They always had the little quips, the comedy stuff. I have a sense of humor and I think it might have worked for me.

So you joined TikTok after the big Moon Knight look. What are your thoughts on social media platforms?

I’m impressed with it. I love social media because in the early days you’d have to hire a PR person to do all your stuff. But right now, with TikTok, Facebook and Instagram and Twitter and YouTube, you’re out there all the time and people are involved in you. But some of the questions that people have asked me on TikTok: “Are you still in show business?” “Are you still singing?” [Laughs] Those are the people who don’t know I’m around.

Do you do read the comments?

I do read the comments. I think it’s important to keep in touch with what they’re thinking about you and how you’re promoting yourself out there. Most of them are very complimentary. Social media is what makes me change my songs. People start suggesting things, so I would listen to it and think, “maybe they have a point.” I change [my set list] to give my audiences that come back over and over the chance to see something different.

Are there any younger singers now who impress you?

There are some great people out there right now. I’ll tell you how I keep up with what’s going on: I watch the programs The Voice, America’s Got Talent, things like that, and I listen to the songs they’re promoting. That’s how I keep up with my musical ideas. Those people know what they’re doing. One of my favorite people [right now] I met when he was five years old. I told him, “You’re gonna be a big star, a mega star.” He performed for me when he was five and he had a little Elvis suit on. You know who that was? Bruno Mars. He’s bigger now. I love him, I love what he does, he’s the whole package.

And you knew Elvis, of course. Have you seen the new movie about him?

No, I haven’t. The last movie I saw was Bullet Train, and of course, I have a song in there (“I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”). When the song is played, your name appears in the bottom in red, and I felt so proud of myself. It’s like seeing your name on the marquee for the first time again. It has kind of a Tarantino flair to it; it was quite good.

Elvis was one of my inspirations. When I was 18, I was in the service in Germany in the British army and who should be there at the same time — Elvis. Not where I was, but [also] in Germany. I used to play his music on the jukebox and little did I know that later on I would befriend this wonderful artist and wonderful man. I thought he was the best show business person I ever met in my life. I got to see him when we were working in Vegas. He would come over and see my show, I would go over and see his show. I said to him one time, “Elvis, I’m going to be recording some of your songs.” He said, “Don’t worry, pal, I’ve already recorded some of yours, too.” I did steal a few things from him on stage, the way he operates on stage, but he stole something from me: My sideburns. [laughs] I had my sideburns in ’65 and he put his on early ’70s. I told him that: I said, “Elvis, you stole my sideburns.” He said [adopts swaggering Elvis voice], “Well if it looks good on you, it’s gonna look good on me.”

What was your inspiration for those sideburns back then?

Nobody else was doing it when I started it. I remember my manager saying to me, “Why don’t you chop them off, they look stupid, they look crazy,” and I said, “Gordon I’m trying to create an image here.” And it worked! And later on people like Glen Campbell and Kenny Rogers grew the sideburns, including the Beatles.

What was Elvis like to watch in concert?

Just amazing. I never saw anybody put so much into his performances as he did. He had a good set of pipes and a mighty range. I think you have to see him to believe his records really work. He was unbelievable. And what I loved about him was his dress – he was always immaculately dressed. He gave his all.

What about you – do you still get a kick out of recording music and performing? You must if you’re still out there.

The only time I’m really happy is when I walk on stage. I’m really happy when I walk on stage. It’s the ultimate in my life. Songs mean that much more to me now and some of the lyrics because I lost my darling wife [in 2021] and the lyrics mean that much more to me now.



Engelbert Humperdinck's favourite tunes 'remind him of more carefree times'

August 26, 2022

By Bang Showbiz in Music / Festivals on 26 August 2022 Contact Music

Engelbert Humperdinck believes that a memorable tune can have a transformational impact.

Engelbert Humperdinck's favourite tunes remind him of a "more carefree" time in his life.

The 86-year-old singer - who has a new single called 'My First, My Last, My Everything' - believes that a memorable tune can have a transformational impact.

He told BANG Showbiz: "This first single from the new album we’re recording at the moment is a song that we all loved back in the day, is 'My First, My Last, My Everything'. 

"It was such a smash because of the incredible Barry White vocals and the driving arrangement. You couldn’t sit still or not sing it. I think it’s a great choice for a country feel and when I saw the line dancing in action at the filming of the video, I couldn’t help but get caught up in the atmosphere.

"I had a blast at The Cowboy Palace Saloon. 

"I may need to go back for a few refreshers on the steps sometime ... because I don’t want to just be the singer!"

Engelbert also admits that a good song can take him back to a time when people were more "social".

The veteran music star - who released his debut album in 1967 - said: "A great song can also sometimes circle back, bring back good memories and reignite our love for a kinder, gentler and more carefree time in our lives, where people were more in person social … dance halls, skating rinks and just singing together in a pub on a bus … the football crowds have always carried that tradition on."




Engelbert Humperdinck opens up on wife’s heartbreaking Alzheimer’s death ‘God had plans’

August 26, 2022

For more than ten years Engelbert Humperdinck's beloved wife Patricia suffered from Alzheimer's. She had been having revolutionary acupuncture treatments and even showing signs of improvement. Cruelly, she died aged 85 in February last year from heart failure after contracting Covid.


00:01, Fri, Aug 26, 2022, Daily Express

Towards the end Engelbert, who is a staunch Roman Catholic with strong faith, would pray at her bedside. “I’m a total believer. I prayed every day in our house at 8pm,” he sighs. “My family would gather around the bed and we would pray along with people in the world because we had told them on social media that that was the time we prayed. So there were many people who lent their hearts.”

He pauses: “We did it every day… but I’m afraid God had other plans.”

After more than half a century of marriage, Patricia’s loss continues to affect the singer. It is clear that her loss is still raw and painful.

“It’s hard to talk about,” admits the 86-year-old star.

“We were together for 57 years and she left four wonderful children behind – and me. The children are okay, they are finding it as difficult as I am to manage without her. Sometimes it’s hard, actually most times it’s hard.

“But she was suffering so much. We thought she was going to be cured and then along came this bloody Covid, it got hold of her.”

Throwing himself into his work – he continues to tour and release music – has been Engelbert’s way of coping, he explains.

“All I really want to do now is just work,” says the star. “That’ll keep me going and keep my mind off things. I just want to do that until God calls me.”

When we speak the singer is coming to the end of a tour of Asia.

And, he says, Patricia is with him in all his shows.

“I’ve added a song to my show which I wrote about 30 years ago, called Everywhere I Go. I dedicate it to my wife,” adds Engelbert.

“It has a tremendous impact and I never realised that the words would be so poignant.”

The song opens with the lines: “Memories of your love haunt me night and day, everywhere I go.”

It’s tough to sing, he admits, but he remains the consummate professional.
“I’m one of the old school. I do about an hour-and-a-half in my show, I don’t leave the stage.”

Engelbert has released his new single and video, a country version of Barry White’s 1974 classic You’re The First, The Last, My Everything.

“You would never think this particular song would turn into a country line dance song,” says Engelbert. “Barry White’s version of it was unmistakable. He had his own inimitable style. I’ve taken it and moved it into a different direction and hopefully, it has the catchy form that people like.”
The video, which exclusively premieres on the Daily Express website today, was shot in the Cowboy Palace Saloon, a honky tonk club in Los Angeles. Engelbert said he wanted to keep it as authentic as possible with genuine dancers, not actors.

The song is a taster from his new album, coming out later this year, which was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. It is not the first time he has covered this genre. His huge 1960s hits Release Me and There Goes My Everything were originally country tunes.

And when it comes to redefining genres and reinvention, Engelbert, who has sold 140 million albums during his almost 60-year career, is having something of a moment.

His song A Man Without Love, originally released in 1968, features in the Marvel Studios series Moon Knight – and currently has more than 57 million hits on Spotify.

“I’ve been having a bit of good luck,” he smiles. “After 54 years it went back into the charts at number one on the Spotify charts. When success comes along after a long silence, it is so thrilling. It’s finding that needle again in that haystack and it starts that ball rolling.”

It’s not the only track that is reaching a new audience.

He also has Quando Quando Quando in the Netflix series Umbrella Academy and I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles in the recent hit man thriller film Bullet Train starring Brad Pitt.

“It’s a pretty Hollywood arrangement of I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles. It sounds great and I enjoyed singing it,” he says.

“Brad did pass me by in the theatre when I was watching the movie but he was too busy doing his social stuff that I didn’t get to say hello. He’s one of my favourite people as an actor.”

During his Asian tour, Engelbert has been to Japan and Malaysia. It finishes in Thailand.

“This is something different for me,” he says.

“It’s been a magnificent tour and I’ve collected a few memories in the form of photographs and videos. Usually, I’m just in and out and I don’t have time to do anything.

“It’s been so wonderful to see things for the first time without worrying. Before I had to stay with my wife for many years and make sure that she was being treated right. That to me was more important at the time. I’m ready now to be able to do things.”

That includes meeting Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother of Thailand, 90, who is due to come to his last show in Bangkok.

She even had a special request for Engelbert.

“She asked for the song No Other Love, which I recorded many years ago. We went crazy trying to get the lyrics, the melody and the arrangement done as it’s quite an honour when somebody like that asks you to do something. I’ve got the song ready.”

He was equally honoured when he met another Royal, Princess Anne, in April this year when he received his MBE at Windsor Castle.

“It was such an exciting thing for me,” he says. “She was amazing. I admire her tenacity. She stood there for hours and hours talking to people she didn’t know, making conversation.”

Coming back to the UK is always special for him.

Engelbert divides his time between his houses in California and Great Glen, Leicestershire.

The couple made it their UK base as Engelbert, born Arnold Gerry Dorsey, grew up there and it’s where he met Patricia. Very much a part of the community, her funeral was held in Loughborough last August.

“I love coming back and to be able to stay at my home in England, to recapture some memories that are still lingering in the clouds,” he says.

After Thailand, he’s gigging across the States until December and hopes to tour the UK again soon. “You’d better believe it. I’m pushing to come!”

Last year he had to cancel a 14 date tour after falling ill with a viral bronchial infection.

Now fighting fit and eager to take on more, he says keeping involved and active is the key to his success.

“I keep up with the times by watching programmes like The Voice and all the Got Talent shows. It keeps me up to date.

“I’m also very active on social media. Every day I put out something different. I think it’s one of the greatest things that ever happened in show business. As soon as you do something, millions of people know about it immediately.

“It’s all about hard work and enjoying what I do. I intend to carry on.”

Engelbert Humperdinck makes Hua Hin even more romantic with seaside concert at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort — and gets charmed himself during first-ever visit to city

August 22, 2022

By Online Reporter - August 22, 2022 Hua Hin Today

Engelbert Humperdinck is a pop music legend. He’s known worldwide for songs such as ‘Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)’ and several other smash hits. To date the British vocalist has sold upwards of 150 million records.

To his many accomplishments, he now adds another – his first visit to Hua Hin.

Ahead of a much-anticipated beachside performance on 20 August – “The Legendary Engelbert Humperdinck in Hua Hin” at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort – the singer arrived in Thailand on 18 August and, always the consummate professional, he immediately headed to Hua Hin to prepare for the show.

That didn’t mean, however, there wasn’t time for a typically warm Thai welcome and chance to experience the many delights of Hua Hin.

After being officially welcomed and honoured by former deputy prime minister His Excellency Suwat Liptapanlop at InterContinental Hua Hin Resort, Engelbert enjoyed contemporary Thai cuisine at Jaras Hua Hin, savouring the restaurant’s famed signature dishes including Hor Mok Khun Ya, a traditional recipe created by Khun Ya Jaraspim Liptapanlop.

The day before the concert, it was on to BluPort Mall directly adjacent InterContinental Hua Hin Resort and more Thai cultural experiences.

At The Legend Arena, Engelbert witnessed a thrilling performance of Muay Thai, the ancient and world-renowned Thai martial art. The boxing performance was led by a Muay Thai professional and Olympic bronze medallist Wiew Yaowapa Burapolchai.


Next up for the singer of pop-music classics was another kind of classic – classic cars – and in this case the pink 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty-Special like the one owned and cherished by none other than the ‘King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’, Elvis Presley. It was a chance for one music legend to check out the stylish ride of another as well as to take lots of photos to keep the memory alive.

For performers who travel the world, life on the road can be exhausting. With a visit to CHEVALA wellness centre, also in BluPort Mall, Engelbert learned about Hua Hin’s premier personalised programme of health, well-being, anti-ageing and beauty therapies.

Engelbert Humperdinck’s whirlwind tour of Hua Hin ended on a hight note with an evening at Vana Nava Sky Bar and Restaurant, Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin. The restaurant, bar andnightclub soars 27 storeys above Hua Hin and features a glass-bottomed observation deck for breath-taking views in all directions – ‘Heart Don’t Fail Me Now’ indeed!

The night culminated with the concert “The Legendary Engelbert Humperdinck in Hua Hin” in a romantic atmosphere by the sea at night while listening to the warm sound from “Engelbert Humperdinck” very exclusive close-up in the Garden area in the middle of the hotel at the long slope to the swimming pool, signature view at the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort.

Enjoy an hour-long live performance of popular songs such as Please Release Me, The Last Waltz Lady Of The Night, Misty Blues, After The Loving, Spanish Eyes, Quando Quando Quando, and others, as well as a fine dining 4 course and beverages.

Engelbert Humperdinck has said that he returned to Thailand this time to perform at the InterContinental Hotel Hua Hin Resort in a concert titled “The Legendary Engelbert Humperdinck in Hua Hin.” I am overjoyed to return to Thailand. This time, a lot has changed since my last visit, and I’ve seen beautiful architecture and design, including buildings and houses, especially in Hua Hin, which has a beautiful sandy beach, people are extremely nice,as well as well-known and delicious Thai dishes such as Hor Mok Khun Ya, a recipe from Jaratpim Liptapan; the flavour is hot but tasty.




Engelbert Humperdinck Biography: In His Own Words – Exclusive Video, News, Photos

August 02, 2022

 by Reese AlexanderAugust 1, 2022, 11:56 pm UInterview


Arnold George Dorsey was born on May 2, 1936 (Engelbert Humperdinck: age 86) in what was then referred to as Madras, British India, but is now known as Chennai, India. His parents, Olive Dorsey and Mervyn Dorsey, a British Army Officer, had ten children altogether. 

When Humperdinck was ten years old, his family moved from India to Leicester, England. By the 1950s, he had begun performing on the saxophone in nightclubs. His music career was put on hold in the mid-1950s when Humperdinck was conscripted into the British Army. After his discharge, he recorded singles with Decca Records. Later that same year, Humperdinck switched to Parlophone Records, but his first record was not successful.

In 1959, he joined the The Big Beat Show, a touring show which featured other pop singers as well. He also continued to work in nightclubs, and made a few television appearances.

In 1961, Humperdinck caught tuberculosis. His recovery took nine months, and by then he had to start his music career over again.


In 1965, Humperdinck adopted his famous stage name, which was borrowed from the famous German composer Engelbert Humperdinck. Speaking to uInterview, Humperdinck revealed the story behind this momentous name change which transformed him from Arnold Dorsey into Engelbert Humperdinck.

“I guess I was a struggling young man who was looking for an opportunity to get into show business,” the singer mused. “I had a name that wasn’t making it, so the manager Gordon Mills who was building a stable of singers, I was one of three, and he gave each one of us a composer’s name, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Tom Jones and myself.”

Humperdinck, along with four other sings, won the Belgian Knokke song contest for Great Britain in 1966.

In 1967, Humperdinck’s recording of “Release Me” topped the charts in the United Kingdom. It also made it to No. 4 of the U.S. Billboard. The song spent 56 weeks in the Top 50, and sold around 85,000 copies a day at its height. Following the enormous success of “Release Me”, Humperdinck was cemented as a rising star in the public’s eye. He immediately released two more hits, “There Goes My Everything” and “The Last Waltz,” which continued his rise to fame.

When speaking about “Release Me”, Humperdinck told uInterview, “I got lucky because I recorded ‘Release Me’ and it sat on a shelf for about three months, and I thought ‘It’s a hit song, why isn’t it taking off?’ But I’d never done a TV show,” Humperdinck continued. “So all the sudden a gentleman got ill in England, and I took his place. It was Sunday night at the London Palladium. I did the show, I did two songs together and then ‘Release Me.’ And then bingo, the next day there were orders for 18,000 a day, 19,000 a day, and this was going on daily… It spread around the world, and gave me a global career.”

Throughout the 70s, Humperdinck continued to focus on creating albums and performing live. He was a regular in Las Vegas, with his usual performance spot being the famous Riviera Hotel. Humperdinck also took to the Broadway stage, where he performed his live show at the Minskoff Theatre.

In 1989, Humperdinck received both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and his very own Golden Globe Award for entertainer of the year. Humperdinck began to involve himself in several charity organizations. This includes the American Red Cross, the Leukemia Research Fund, and many different institutions dedicated to AIDS relief.

In 2000, Humperdinck once again hit the top 5 of British album charts with Engelbert at His Very Best. Throughout the 2000s, he continued to release new music to critical acclaim as well as to collaborate with several fellow artists.

In 2014, Humperdinck released Engelbert Calling, which finds him collaborating with such artists as Sir Elton John, Willie Nelson, Olivia-Newton John and Gene Simmons. 

After the release of his 2017 album The Man I Want to Be, Humperdinck sat down with uInterview to discuss the touching reason why he decided to dedicate this newest album to his wife, Patricia Healey. “My wife has Alzheimer’s, so she can’t follow me to concerts anymore like she used to,” Humperdinck revealed. “But we have hope in our hearts that she will one day very soon, because we’re working on a cure for her… And music is one thing that really, really helps people in that condition, and so I decided to dedicate this album to her.”

In 2022, Humperdinck’s song “A Man Without Love” was featured in the hit Marvel series Moon Knight.

Humperdinck continues to release new music and tour the globe to this day. Tickets are on sale now for Humperdinck’s 2022 tour.


Humperdinck married Patricia Healey in 1964. Together they had four children, and they split their time between houses in Great Britain and Southern California. In 2017, Humperdinck released the news that his wife had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s ten years previous. On February 5, 2021, Healey passed away from COVID-19.

If you wait long enough, everything comes back from the past.

Now it’s Engelbert Humperdinck’s turn. The 60s crooner has seen his 1968 hit “A Man Without Love” suddenly rising on the charts 54 years after it first appeared. 

The song is featured on Marvel’s Disney Plus show “Moon Knight” in such a prominent way that it’s sent fans to Spotify in droves. The song is number 5 this morning on the Viral Top 50 in the US.

Not only that. “A Man Without Love” suddenly has 15.9 million streams on Spotify. Most of the other tracks on the Live album from which it was taken average around 50,000 streams. 

Engelbert’s real name is Arnold George Dorsey and he turns 86 years young on May 2nd. The real Engelbert was the German composer of “Hansel and Gretel,” among other operas. Dorsey, like Gilbert O’Sullivan and Tom Jones, was renamed by his famous manager, Gordon Mills, who obviously had a sense of humor.
