A surprise pairing.

Spotted in Coles tonight was this CD, I saw a video of this the other day and was very pleasantly surprised by it, I've been a fan of Tony Bennett for 40+ years but knew nothing of Lady Gaga except she seemed a free spirit. What came as a surprise was that Tony Bennett can still sing and perform at 88 y/o, something which the mighty Sinatra lost at about 60, plus the Lady Gaga can actually sing as well as perform. She now gets my tick of approval and it's a shame there isn't more performers like these performing classic songs done in a relaxed non-stress inducing way.
If Tony Bennett can just stay alive for a while longer perhaps more big name singers who are unknown to older generations may be discovered.
