'I'm so thrilled' - Engelbert Humperdinck duets with nine-year-old granddaughter
This morning we were joined by international music legend, Engelbert Humperdinck ahead of his London show this Sunday.
Humperdinck is no stranger to the music business, celebrating 50 years since the release of his legendary smash hit, Release Me, which debuted back in 1967.
The star’s new album The Man I Want To Be is an open love letter to his wife, Patricia. He explained: “This album is the form of a love letter to my wife, a dedication. The title is all the experience I’ve had over the years. It’s really to the partner of your life, whoever that is.”
On the album featuring a duet with his granddaughter, he exclaimed: “No one has had a duet with a nine year old before, and I’m so thrilled. She’s such a great singer.”
Humperdinck is famous for spotting talent. He met pop star Bruno Mars when he was just five and predicted: "One day you'll be a star". The music legend has even covered the Bruno Mars hit Just The Way You Are on his new record as well as Ed Sheeran's Photograph.
The new album The Man I Want To Be is released next Friday.
