Legendary singer Tony Bennett has been battling Alzheimer's disease for over four years, his family has revealed.

Bennett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2016 and since then the disease has progressed, according to the magazine.

Benedetto also gave an interview to CBS This Morningon Monday, saying that Bennett is still able to rehearse twice a week at home, singing for an hour or so at a time. "I'm hoping and praying that he won't take a turn for the worse that's really insane bad", said Susan.

Crow explained that there have been challenges. "It's no fun arguing with someone who doesn't understand you". We have such a good team.

"Both Susan and (his son and manager) Danny said that backstage, Tony could seem utterly mystified about his whereabouts". The album, which the story says was recorded between 2018 and early 2020, is set for a spring release.

"Singing is everything to him", Crow said. "Everything. It has saved his life many times".

Variants: should we review the ways of wearing the mask?
Outdoor settings have generally proven safer as fresh air and the ability to spread out lowers risk of transmission. Should the negative, though, cloud the power in the wearing of a mask? Dr.

The hitmaker with a cheery smile has had a particularly strong past decade career-wise despite his condition, becoming the oldest person ever to reach number one on the United States album sales chart with his collection of duets with Lady Gaga.

Despite living with the condition, Bennett revealed he has been working with Lady Gaga on a follow-up to their 2014 Top 10 album Cheek To Cheek, a collection of jazz standards recorded by the pair. "So many of my patients are negatively affected by the isolation, the inability to do the things that matter to them", he said.

Crow added that though Bennett is fortunate, he's still not the same as before.

"There's a lot about him that I miss", his wife of 14 years, Susan, said. "But when he sings, he's the old Tony".
