Perry Como

'With a Song in my

Perry Como was born on May 18th 1912 in the steel town of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania,
and first worked in a barber shop at the age of 12. Como then left the barber job to sing
with big bands, first with Freddie Carlone, and later, in 1935 with the Ted Weems Orchestra.
When the orchestra broke up in 1942, Como signed a recording contract with RCA,
with whom he was to top the charts with "'Till The End Of Time" in 1945.

Como helped pioneer variety shows on the new medium of television in the 1950s
and performed on television specials during the past four decades. His television career spanned 20 years.
He had 14 singles that made it to No. 1 and sold more than 100 million albums.
He had more than 20 gold records in his career, and was probably best known
for the tune "And I Love You So."

In 1958, Como won a Grammy Award as best male singer for the hit "Catch a Falling Star."

While Como emulated singer Bing Crosby in his early years, some of his best-known numbers
were light novelty songs like "Hot Diggity" and "Papa Loves Mambo."
During most of the sixties, Como was in semi retirement, but was tempted back out onto the road
in the 70's on a fairly extensive world tour. This increased exposure also led to his first hit singles
for over a decade with "It's Impossible", "For The Good Times" and "I Love You So"
According to some sources, Como had sold in excess of 100 million albums by the eighties,
and once again, retired from the business, releasing just a couple of compilations
over the next decade or so.
Unfortunately, on 12 May 2001, 6 days before his 89th birthday,
Perry Como died peacefully in his sleep at his home.
