Engelbert Humperdinck: Aloha from L.A.

January 03, 2020

An exclusive chat with your nonna’s favorite singer

 January 1, 2020 Katherine Yeske Taylor, Rock and Roll Globe

“Aloha! I’m saying ‘aloha’ because I just came back from Hawaii,” says Engelbert Humperdinck, calling from his home in Los Angeles. 

The legendary singer is cheerful and charming despite suffering from severe jet lag after returning from an extensive string of overseas shows. “It’s been a hectic tour – I’ve done six countries in just over 14 days,” he says, listing off several Asian nations as well as the Hawaii stop. And he’s not done yet: in two days, he’ll set off for several more concerts, this time spanning the continental United States.

This would be an exhausting work schedule for anyone, let alone someone of Humperdinck’s age (he’s 83 years old). But he’s intent on promoting his latest EP, Reflections, a 5-song collection of the type of grandly melodic songs that have made him an iconic singer since his career first took off more than 50 years ago. He is nicknamed “The King of Romance,” and with good reason: his songs often tell unabashedly emotional love stories.

“It’s got some things on it that I particularly love very much,” Humperdinck says of Reflections. In particular, he’s proud of the song “I’m Glad I Danced with You (Candlelight Mix),” on which he duets with his granddaughter, Olivia. He says her performance is “totally amazing, and I mean that most sincerely. She sang it with passion and with meaning.”

 

He says he’s also extremely fond of the song “Don’t Let the Old Man In,” written by Toby Keith, which is about resisting the aging process – bolstered by the memorable line, “Ask yourself how old you’d be / If you didn’t know the day you were born.” 

“I fell in love with that song because all the lyrics have my sentiments entirely,” Humperdinck says. “I don’t want to get old. You know, I’m about 53 [years old] now, I have to think about these things!” he jokes. “I act and talk and dress as young as I possibly can. Not too young, but young enough to say, ‘This guy doesn’t look his age.’”

To check out how youthful Humperdinck looks these days, fans should seek out the music video for the EP’s first single, “You” (as of this writing, it has already logged almost a quarter of a million views on YouTube, even though it was just released in mid-September). This is, in fact, his first-ever official music video. “[It] was a breath of fresh air, and it was nice for me to do it,” Humperdinck says. “Hopefully it will take my career on to another step.”

Indeed, at a time when most performers would think about retiring, Humperdinck is still showing the same type of work ethic and persistence that helped him launch his career in the first place. “I want to tell you something: I’ve auditioned many, many times, and I’ve been rejected. The first condition of communication is the willingness to take rejection, and I took it so many times, but you know what? If you don’t knock on doors, they’re not going to open. So I knocked on doors. I knew that one day, one door will open, and it did.”

Even so, Humperdinck says he had “no idea” that his career would become this successful. Growing up in England, he says he “was not going to be a singer – I was going to be a saxophone player, and I thought I would be a big band leader.” But he switched courses when, at 17 years old, “I got up and sang in a club and I got a standing ovation for it, and I thought to myself, ‘This is what I want to do.’ So I started singing from then onwards.”

At the time, he was performing using his birth name, Gerry Dorsey. But even with his impressive singing ability, he still didn’t find real success until his late 20s when, in a now-famous move, he took the stage name “Engelbert Humperdinck.” This had the desired effect of grabbing people’s attention long enough for them to check out his shows and discover that he was a true talent.

Since his debut recording, Release Me (1967), he has gone on to release more than 60 studio albums (plus many live albums and compilation albums), which have collectively sold a staggering 140 million copies worldwide. His singles, such as “Release Me” and “The Last Waltz,” are among the most recognizable songs ever recorded. His song “Ten Guitars,” originally released as the B-side to “Release Me,” has been adopted as the unofficial national anthem of New Zealand, of all things (a development that Humperdinck calls “amazing”); there is a re-recorded version of that track on the Reflections EP. But even with such an impressive history of hits, Humperdinck is still ambitious: “I’m still not giving up – I’m still trying to get another song that’s going to hit the top of the charts.”

He thinks his success has a lot to do with the type of songs that he has chosen to sing. “I personally enjoy songs that have a great deal of meaning. A song that has a storyline attached to it, that people have lived by, and that I’ve lived by – so when people hear it, they say, ‘That sounds like part of me.’ And I like to get involved with very good melodies that last forever, not ones that you can’t hum a few bars after you’ve heard it the first time.” 

As he prepares for this next tour, Humperdinck says he’s still mindful, even now, that he must continue to earn fans’ respect. “Each and every audience has their own reaction, and believe me, it’s nerve-wracking not knowing what you’re going to receive. But when you finally achieve your goal, it’s quite rewarding.” He cites his recent concert in Japan as a perfect example of this: “I haven’t been [there] in many, many years, and I had to win them back. They were a very reserved audience, and therefore, it took a bit of work. But in the end, I got them, and they were standing up right in front, like at a rock show!” he says, delighted.

All those fans he’s won over will undoubtedly be happy to know that he’s already planning to record another album next year. “I don’t know what it’s going to be about, but nevertheless, I hope it has a memorable existence because that’s the way I like my records, so that they stay around forever.”

LIVE: ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK November 30, 2019

December 12, 2019

Todd 'ToddStar' Jolicoeur | 7 December 2019 | 100 Percent Rock

Due to a shift in travel (thanks to a medical episode), I found myself heading to Las Vegas after Thanksgiving. After a quick perusal of shows in Vegas while I was scheduled to be in town, there was one that caught my eye and I immediately reached out to one of my publicist friends and asked for a last minute favor.  Within a short time, I was hooked up and added this to my agenda in LV and counted down to the moments I would be photographing the legend Engelbert Humperdinck. As I readied for the show I observed as an excited crowd filled up the Orleans Showroom for the second of three capacity shows. The show started off as the band took their spots and their respective instruments and started up and the crowds anticipation and excitement grew exponentially until Engelbert made his way to the front of the stage and launched into the Cole Porter classic “Begin the Beguine.”  The crowd lost their minds and I was in awe from that moment until the last notes of the show played out. You hear stories and know there is something to a performer that has had a career as long as Engelbert has had, but when you see it first hand… it is mind blowing. I continued clicking away as he and his band made their way through “Am I That Easy to Forget” and “My World (Il Mondo)” captivating the audience and taking them through songs from his catalog. While I stepped out to load my gear up and grab a copy of his most recent CD, I missed a song but made my way to my seat to catch one of the most recognizable tracks from his huge discography – “After the Lovin'” and I found myself joining Humperdinck and the rest of the crowd singing along to this phenomenal track.  Parts of the show were very storyteller-like, as he introduced various tracks with anecdotes about the track, including the tandem of Dean Martin tracks “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime” and “Quando, Quando, Quando.” Moving from Martins to Mars, he introduced his own version of the Bruno Mars track “Just The Way You Are.” The show is about the music, but you cannot ignore the way Humperdinck uses his music, memories, and a lot of jokes (not just cheesy ones either) to genuinely entertain the audience. Another highlight for me during the show was the introduction of a song written by one of his children about one of the first memories he has with his wife of more than 50 years. As he finished telling the story behind “I’m Glad I Danced With You” and how the recorded version includes his granddaughter Olivia, he proudly proclaimed she was in the venue and she joined him on stage for an amazing performance that will stand out in my mind for a while.  He allowed her to take the stage for a solo track after that and then resumed the show with the tour namesake track “Angel on My Shoulder.” As a performer that understands you are only as good each night as the band behind you, he took time during the medley of “I Can’t Stop Loving You / Eye of the Tiger” to allow each member to shine on their respective instruments. He thanked the audience for standing behind him all these years and for all the fan mail and letters of support for his wife (who has been battling Alzheimer’s for over a decade) and dedicated “Love Letters” to each and every one of the audience members. After a couple covers – Toby Keith’s “Don’t Let the Old Man In” and “That’s Life” made famous by Frank Sinatra, Engelbert launched into arguably one of his biggest hit “The Last Waltz” and again, the crowd joined in and we all sang and swayed together in our seats. As the showed wound down, I was caught off guard as seemingly half the audience jumped from their seats and rushed the front of the stage for one of the tracks I was most excited to hear – “Release Me.”  The smiles and appreciation flowed from the stage to the audience and back again as we all basked in the amazing performance we had just witnessed. As the final song of the evening as played, I was amazed with the care and love for his fans Engelbert showed. He pointed, smiled, winked, and for the crowd that formed around the front of the venue, he shook every hand that was within his reach. This is a show NOT to be missed if it hits your area when he resumed touring in January 2020. I personally cannot wait for him to land in Detroit in February. Thanks to Rey and AM Management for the amazing opportunity!

Setlist: Begin the Beguine – Am I That Easy to Forget – My World (Il Mondo) – A Man Without Love – After the Lovin’ – Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime – Quando, Quando, Quando – Another Time Another Place – Just The Way You Are – I’m Glad I Danced With You – Angel on My Shoulder – I Can’t Stop Loving You / Eye of the Tiger – Love Letters – Don’t Let the Old Man In – That’s Life – The Last Waltz – This Moment in Time / The Way It Used to Be / Les bicyclettes de Belsize / There Goes My Everything / Spanish Eyes / Love Is All – You – Release Me – How I Love You

Review: Engelbert Humperdinck fantastic at The Theatre at Westbury

November 25, 2019

By Markos Papadatos Digital Journal November 24, 2019

Westbury - On November 23, veteran pop star Engelbert Humperdinck performed at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, for a good turnout of fans.

He began his Westbury set with "Begin the Beguine," where he was greeted with a standing ovation from the Long Island audience. It was followed by the mid-tempo and catchy "Am I That Easy to Forget," as well as "My World (Il Mondo)" and "A Man Without Love."

Humperdinck invited two of his female background vocals on stage with him for the upbeat "Quando, quando, quando," which included a neat dance number. He displayed his rich and controlled voice on "Another Time Another Place" and he shared the story of meeting Bruno Mars at the age of five and telling him that he was going to be a "mega-star" someday, and it turned out that Humperdinck was right. In return, he delivered a stirring ballad version of Bruno Mars' Grammy award-winning hit single "Just The Way You Are."

One of the most moving moments of the show was his granddaughter, Olivia, appearing on the televised screen with him and singing a duet of "I'm Glad I Danced With You," which left many in tears and earned him yet another standing ovation. He also incorporated "Angel on My Shoulder" as a singalong with the crowd. 

Humperdinck also took the time to give a shoutout to a "great actress" in the audience, Jill Hennessy from the hit NBC series Crossing Jordan and Law & Order, who was in awe of the pop crooner's talent.

He immediately broke into "I Can't Stop Loving You," and during an instrumental version of "Eye of the Tiger," he went on to introduce his band members.

Humperdinck shared that "Love Letters" was inspired after reading the heartfelt fanmail that his fans sent him, and the Toby Keith-penned "Don't Let the Old Man In" felt autobiographical to him so he felt compelled to "steal the song."

He tipped his hat to the late but great Frank Sinatra with "That's Life" and equally remarkable was his enthralling version of "The Last Waltz."

Humperdinck also sang a medley of such songs as "This Moment in Time," "The Way It Used to Be," "There Goes My Everything," and the sultry "Spanish Eyes," which he sang with maximum heart and soul.

He treated his audience to his music video of "You" on the giant televised screen as he sang along to the expressive ballad. Humperdinck closed his set with such powerhouse songs as "Release Me" and "How I Love You," both of which received standing ovations. Ever gracious, he expressed his gratitude to his fans for being with him for 53 years.

The Verdict

Overall, Engelbert Humperdinck was terrific at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury. His velvet vocals are as resonant as ever, and he was able to take his fans and listeners on a journey through time with his music. His music is timeless and still relevant to this day as when he first recorded these classic tunes. Humperdinck's live set onLong Island garnered five out of five stars.

Engelbert Humperdinck talks longevity, touring and dedicated fans

November 21, 2019

By Markos Papadatos     Digital Journal, November 20, 2019

On November 20, veteran British pop star Engelbert Humperdinck chatted with Digital Journal about his upcoming show at Westbury, the key to longevity in his career and he expressed his gratitude to his loyal fans, who have been with him for 53 years.

 

Humperdinck will be performing at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Saturday, November 23. "The year has gone by so quickly, I will be there in a few days," he said. "It's a show that I've taken around the world. I just got back from a heavy 14 days in six different countries."

"I have some great, heavy-duty songs in my show," he admitted. "My songs give me a chance to express my feelings and take what is happening in my life and bring it out on stage. It seems to work."

His Reflections EP was released on November 15, 2019 via OK! Good Records. On his new Reflections EP, "That idea was a pretty good idea from my producer. We are bringing back songs that people have heard in their lives such as 'Don't Let the Old Man In,' which is a song that I stole from Toby Keith, who wrote it, sing it and released it. That song had my sentiments in its lyrics. I took the song and I recorded it and you will hear my rendition on stage in Westbury. It gets a massive applause, and it really strikes home to me. That song helps me stay young."

Regarding the key to longevity in his career, Humperdinck said, "I love what I do and why I am doing it. I keep doing the right things and I try to sing the right songs. I stay in touch with my audience on social media."

On the title of the current chapter of his life, he shared, "I am living the best part of my life right now." "My wife has had Alzheimer's for the past 10 years, I've asked people around the world to pray for her and she is getting better," he said.

"I wrote a little something for my life: 'Although I cannot love her as a lover, I gave up on her beauty as she sleeps, I wonder if she feels me by her side, I gently touch her shoulder... I whisper loving words in her ear, I pray that soon I will say them aloud and she will hear me and I will see her smile as if to say: 'you know, I seem to have heard those words before.' Only then, shall I say, with all my heart, 'welcome home, my love'."

For his dedicated fans, he said, "I talk to my fans every Tuesday. I tell things that are happening in my life. The fans have been very supportive of me for the last 53 years. I haven't been to Tokyo in a very long time but my fan club was at the airport to meet me with flowers and gifts. I have a very, very loyal following, which is almost a cult followin

Evergreen singer Engelbert Humperdinck serenades fans in Melaka for charity

November 15, 2019

Mark Ryan Raj    Malay Mail  14 November 2019

PETALING JAYA, Nov 14 — Renowned English vocalist Engelbert Humperdinck wowed a full house of loyal fans recently during a concert in Melaka as part of his world tour.

The 83-year-old singer, who was born in Chennai (then Madras), India, performed a medley of romantic songs for his fans at the Raja Chulan Grand Ballroom in the newly-opened AMES Hotel in Melaka.

Backed by a six-piece band, two female vocalists, and under the musical direction of David Arana on grand piano, Humperdinck dazzled his fans with his dulcet voice as the crowd swayed and grooved to the rhythm of his tunes.

Humperdinck, whose real name is Arnold George Dorsey, started the night off by performing two of his well-known hits Release Me and The Last Waltz, followed by Don’t Let the Old Man In, amongst a number of his endearing and intimate ballads.

His performance was truly a remarkable one for the crowd as the entertainer kept the audience locked onto his powerful stage presence throughout the entirety of the 90-minute concert, never once showing signs of slowing down despite his age.

“We are very proud and honoured to have a legendary singer and his entourage here at AMES Hotel,” said AMES Hotel’s general manager Balachandran G. Pillay in a press release.

“The team here extends the best of our hospitality services to them and we hope they have enjoyed our warm welcome. We also thank Jojo Events for giving us the opportunity to host such a great concert here.”

Before the concert, there was also a charity dinner, Majlis Makan Malam Bersama Engelbert Humperdinck, at the hotel, where a portion of the proceeds from the dinner was channelled to Yayasan Toh Puan Zurina.

Yayasan Toh Puan Zurina is a haemodialysis centre in Melaka that provides free treatment for underprivileged patients in the area.

Humperdinck’s concert in the historical coastal state is also the first international concert in the state, which was jointly organised by Yayasan Toh Puan Zurina and Jojo Events.

Humperdinck is one of the famed singing sensations of yesteryear with a huge fanbase all over the world, having sold more than 140 million records including 64 golden albums and 23 platinum albums.

He also has a Golden Globe to his name and has racked up four Grammy nominations in his career, along with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Las Vegas Walk of Fame.

HPR's All Things Considered Special Guest: Engelbert Humperdinck

November 15, 2019

By DAVE LAWRENCE 



Today Engelbert Humperdinck returned to HPR’s All Things Considered for a conversation with Honolulu Host Dave Lawrence ahead of his Saturday Blaisdell gig, even offering an impromptu poetry reading!

After recording a PBS-TV special here last year, Engelbert is back with his Angel On My Shoulder tour, named after a track on the new release Reflections, an EP that also includes Don’t Let The Old Man In and You. He performs Saturday at the Blaisdell Concert Hall as part of ANA Honolulu Music Week, but we get him first!

The gifted storyteller offers some memorable experiences with Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, John Lennon and other luminaries, plus a riveting tale about his early 1970’s Houston Astrodome concert, which saw Engelbert enter on horseback.

Read the complete text to Engelbert's new poem, "Hawaii", that he read during the interview:

Hawaii

On approaching the magnificence of nature’s blessed land, the ever-present aroma of scented flowers garland the moment with its special aromatic presence, romantic melodies filling the air, attaching itself to the shapely, tanned, colourful attired body lines of the islands.

Beautiful people using sensitive gestures, as figures of beauty sway to the rhythm of that special harmonious sound. 

Eyes feast as Hawaii feeds visitors in awe of one of the wonders of the world, sea breezes find a way to wander all day and into the stealth of night, comforting, exhilarating, exciting, enchanting, sending a perfume off the highest mountain with a scintillating fragrance as heads raise to capture the moment, and the beaches caress the feet with shoes of white sand, as you walk down towards the shores listing terrain, to cool one's being in its oceanic magnificence.

So my plea is ... don’t just fantasize, experience it, for this land is a more than dream. 

-Engelbert

Our Reflections On The New EP From Engelbert Humperdinck

November 14, 2019

by Lisa Hafey| Posted on 14/11/2019

We really love Engelbert Humperdinck here at Essentially Pop. His career spans more than half a century, and he’s not showing signs of stopping anytime soon. Fans and followers of Enge will know he’s up to date on social media, with his Twitter and Instagram fun places to visit,. while his regular Facebook vlog, “Tuesday Museday” sees him sharing bits and pieces from his everyday life, touring (he never stops!), and music previews. In short, he’s cool.

 

Last year we reviewed Enge’s Christmas album, his first seasonal offering in 40 years; the previous year we reviewed ‘The Man I Want To Be‘, and now, he’s back with a new EP, ‘Reflections’, out this Friday, 15 November.

The five track EP, out on OK! Good Records, opens with the gorgeous ‘You’, dedicated to his wonderful wife Patricia, to whom he’s been married for over 50 years. ‘You’ saw The Hump do something he’s – unbelievably – never done before. For the first time ever, he released a music video to accompany the song, a proper full on video clip, which sees him singing in various locations of a gorgeous villa. There’s also a really lovely scene of him spinning on the lawn, while doves take flight (superimposed sadly) around him.

Engelbert Humperdinck’s voice is as smooth and velvety as it’s always been, and it’s hard to believe that he’s 83 years young. Second track, ‘Don’t Let The Old Man In’ is a country tinged track that reflects on the last years of his life. All the tracks are reflective and often autobiographical, touching on his thoughts of what his life has been. At the same time however, he talks of only being as old as you feel – “ask yourself how old you would be / if you didn’t know the day you were born” – is great advice to all of us who at times feel “old”; growing older isn’t a choice, but feeling old is.

Track 3, ‘Angel On My Shoulder’, is like part 2 of the previous song; also country-tinged, it continues the reverie, with Enge talking about his life, and how he’s never lost the joy and thrill of his chosen career.

The penultimate track, ‘I’m Glad I Danced With You’ is a waltz tempo, and harks back to his legendary classic, ‘The Last Waltz’ (there’s even a wink to it in the lyrics). The song sees Engelbert singing a duet with his granddaughter Olivia, who seems set to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps with a musical career. Her beautiful voice belies her tender years, and the track was released as a surprise Valentine’s Day single this year. Dedicated to Patricia, the song is a real family affair, with lyrics written by Engelbert’s daughter Louise. It’s a re-recording of the track which was released on his album, ‘The Man I Want To Be’, and talks about the night Engelbert and Patricia first met, at a dance, and how their love has lasted throughout the years and notwithstanding Patricia’s Alzheimer’s Disease.

“I met my wife when she was 17 years old in a dance-hall. I asked her to dance and we’ve been together ever since,” says Engelbert.

Final song, ‘Ten Guitars’, opens up like a Duane Eddy number, before going all classic Hump In Vegas style, showing that there’s plenty of life in this fella, who – you watch – will still be recording and touring well into his 90s and beyond.

Engelbert Humperdinck will be returning to Europe in early 2020, but in the meantime he’s touring around the US and you can see him at the following dates:

Nov. 16 – Honolulu, HI @ Blaldell Center Concert Hall

Nov. 22 – Morristown, NJ @ Mayo Performing Arts Center

Why Engelbert Humperdinck loves performing in PH

November 10, 2019

Philippine Daily Inquirer / 12:03 AM November 11, 2019

 

Engelbert Humperdinck, the iconic pop singer known for his enduring easy listening ballads like “The Last Waltz” and “Release Me,” is set to return to Manila anew—this time for his ongoing world tour, “The Angel On My Shoulder.”

 

Mounted by Mr. P Entertainment’s Joed Serrano, with the Inquirer as media partner, the one-night show tomorrow at the New Frontier Theater—will have the British crooner performing his well-loved hits, which likewise include “After the Lovin’” and “This Moment in Time” (call 8911-5555).

 

While he has already performed in the Philippines a couple of times in the past, it seems like Humperdinck, whose real name is Arnold George Dorsey, doesn’t seem to get tired of visiting the country.

 

“I look forward going there because I always have a good time. People are fun and warm,” the veteran music artist told the Inquirer in a previous phone interview, adding that traveling around is one of his passions. “No matter the language people speak, the music speaks louder. It’s all about being able to entertain them.”

 

Dubbed “The King of Romance” during his heyday, Humperdinck amassed a considerable following with his smooth singing and flamboyant fashion style. Humperdinck is a four-time Grammy nominee, has released dozens of studio albums and sold more than 150 million records.

 

At the age of 83, Humperdinck is still very much active, even devoting time to social media to connect with fans while on tour. “I didn’t think I would be spending my life in the industry this long. But through hard work and the help of good people, I’m still here, doing what I love most,” he said. —ALLAN POLICARPIO
