"Engelbert Humperdinck In Hawaii (My Music)" will premiere on the Arkansas Educational Television Network Saturday, Nov. 24, at 6 p.m. Recorded at the historic Hawaii Theatre Center in Honolulu, this all-new concert features Engelbert Humperdinck – "The King of Romance" – crooning more than five decades of his international hits.
With his timeless voice and signature charm, Humperdinck performs a selection of favorite love songs including "After the Lovin'," "The Last Waltz," "Release Me," "A Time for Us" (from "Romeo & Juliet") and many more.
In a career spanning 50 years, Humperdinck has enjoyed sales of over 100 million records, four Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe and stars on the Hollywood and Las Vegas Walks of Fame. While his captivating vocals have charmed millions of fans, it's not just the voice, but the man himself – with his endearing sense of humor – who has won listeners' hearts.
Born in Leicester, England, Humperdinck exploded onto the music scene in the 1960s with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, catapulted almost instantly to world icon status. His first hit single, "Release Me," went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts and went to No. 1 in 11 countries. The following decades saw him touring the world to sell-out crowds as he solidified his international stardom.
