He was a tremendous singer in his time. 'There goes my reason for living'.

I used to like Engelbert Humperdinck's songs too, although I never saw him in concert. He is amazing for his age, when many other pop stars have faded away.

I remember old Engelbert! Actually, I remember the YOUNG Engelbert. What a joy it must have been to be able to watch him perform live after all these years! I envy your experience, and thanks for sharing this!
