Tony Bennett has recorded a new album with his good friend, Lady Gaga.  Such an amazing feat as he recorded this album during his private battle of living with Alzheimer’s.  This record is a follow-up to the album, also recorded with Lady Gaga, back in 2014 and titled “Cheek to Cheek”.

Bennett’s wife, Susan, said:  “He is not always sure where he is or what is happening around him”.

His wife continued to say that Bennett has, to date,  been spared some of the worst characteristics of the disease.  Things like episodes of rage, terror or depression as well as disorientation that can cause patients to wander from home.

Bennett wrote recently in an Instagram post “Life is a gift – even with Alzheimer’s. Thank you to Susan and my family for their support”
