Bruce Willis ‘Is Saddened’ By Famous Friend Dying

Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Hemming Willis recently took to her Instagram account and posted pictures of Bruce and Tony Bennett. It comes after the legendary New York pop and jazz singer passed away on Friday aged 96. She said that she and Bruce are ‘saddened’ by Bennett’s passing.

 


 

“We are so saddened to hear of Mr Bennett’s passing. I will personally always remember him for his kind, graceful and gentle demeanor. An evening spent with Tony and Susan was the best NY date night one could ever ask for.
And his talent, boy his talent—we stand in awe and admiration. I especially applaud the final chapter of his career, as he continued to dazzle and elicit nothing but joy and excitement performing selflessly despite his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. It was a beautiful reminder that we should never allow society to dictate or dismiss anyone because of their cognitive challenges but instead provide the room for them to flourish.
When he hit the stage, he shined and everyone around him beamed!
Thank you to Mr. Bennett and his family for shining a bright light on this disease. It has and will forever be so meaningful and impactful to me.
As Mr. Bennett said, “Life is a gift, even with Alzheimer’s.” 💜”

A statement posted on his Twitter account said: “Tony left us today but he was still singing the other day at his piano and his last song was Because of You, his first #1 hit.

“Tony, because of you we have your songs in our heart forever.”

Bennett was popular for songs such as The Way You Look Tonight, Body and Soul and (I Left My Heart) In San Francisco. He also collaborated with star performers from Lady Gaga to Aretha Franklin and Frank Sinatra, who called him “the best singer in the business”.

During a career that spanned eight decades, Bennett sold millions of records and won 20 Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award.

Bennett’s death was confirmed by his publicist Sylvia Weiner in a statement to the Associated Press. She said he died in his hometown of New York. No specific cause of death was announced, but Bennett had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016.
