Engelbert Humperdinck is believed to be in discussions with producer Simon Cowell after he was spotted leaving Cowell’s London office on Thursday with his manager/son Scott Dorsey.
As reported last week by Noise11.com, the legendary singer recently recorded a new version of his classic ‘Spanish Eyes’ with Cowell discovery and mentored band Il Divo. The song will be featured on Engelbert’s upcoming duets record ‘Engelbert Calling’.
Noise11 has heard that Cowell was so impressed with the Il Divo/Engelbert Humperdinck duet that he called a meeting with the singer and his manager to discuss a mentoring position for one of his shows.
Cowell is the creator of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent and created the American Idol franchise.
The decision for Engelbert Humperdinck to join one of the shows would not be an easy decision to make. The 77-year old music legend is still one of the hardest working acts in showbiz performing over 100 shows around the world still every year.
Engelbert Humperdinck is still earning over $10 million a year, according to industry publications, and has a net worth of $150 million, according to celebrityworth.com.
If the singer does accept a job on television it would mean stopping touring for an extended period and that is something he has never done.
Engelbert Humperdinck’s ‘Engelbert Calling’ album will be released on March 17, 2014. The album will also feature duets with Elton John, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson, Smokey Robinson, Lulu, Willie Nelson and Neil Sedaka.
