Lady Gaga will honor Tony Bennett with a lighting show at the Empire State Building.

Legendary jazz musician and singer Tony Bennett is set to celebrate his 90th Birthday on August 3rd. Honoring the singer's contribution to American music over the last 90 years, the Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. have partnered with iHeartMedia to organize a dynamic music-to-light show at the historic Empire State Building in New York City on his birthday.

 

The ceremony will be attended by Lady Gaga, who is set to "flip the switch" to kick off the music-to-light show which will be synced live to a mix of some of Tony Bennett's most famous hits including 'Because of You', 'Steppin Out (With My Baby)', 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco' and the Bennett and Lady Gaga's version of 'Cheek to Cheek'.

 

Tony Bennett is not just an incredible singer but also a talented painter. His own artworks will also be on display in a window in the Fifth Avenue Lobby of the iconic building from August 3 to September 6. Back in 2014, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett released a collaborative jazz album 'Cheek To Cheek' which won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Album and received generally positive reviews from critics around the world.
