Happy 80th Birthday Engelbert Humperdinck

by Paul Cashmere on May 2, 2016

in News

Engelbert Humperdinck, one of the world’s true music legends, is 80 today. I say this on behalf of me and my family. Happy birthday Enge.

Engelbert Humperdinck was born Arnold Dorsey Madras, India on May 2, 1936. He was actually a late starter to the pop charts. He was 30 when he had his first hit with ‘Release Me’.

1967 was a massive first year for Engelbert Humperdinck. That year he had three hits that went on to become classics with ‘There Goes My Everything’ and ‘The Last Waltz’ along with ‘Release Me’, three songs that he cannot not do today.

By the end of the 60s, Engelbert Humperdinck was one of the biggest stars in the world and even today is constantly touring the planet. At age 80, Engelbert Humperdinck does more shows per year than most rock stars half or even quarter his age his age.

Engelbert Humperdinck and his son Scott Dorsey have become great friends personally and to my wife Ros and to my mother and father. We treasure the times we spend with him. Rarely do you meet someone so genuine, someone so sincere, humble, honest and talented as Engelbert Humperdinck.

It is truly wonderful to sincerely be able to wish the great man a very, very happy 80th birthday.

Love,

The Cashmeres
