Engelbert Humperdinck

Arnold George Dorsey MBE (born 2 May 1936), known professionally as Engelbert Humperdinck, is a British pop singer. His singles "Release Me" and "The Last Waltz" both topped the UK Singles Chart in 1967, selling more than a million copies each. Humperdinck scored further major hits including "Am I That Easy to Forget" and "A Man Without Love". Three of his singles were among the best-selling of the 1960s in the United Kingdom. During the 1970s, he had North American chart successes with "After the Lovin'" (1976) and "This Moment in Time" (1979). He represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 in Baku with the song "Love Will Set You Free". Humperdinck has been described as "one of the finest middle-of-the-road balladeers around" and continues to perform, having sold more than 140 million records worldwide.

Arnold George Dorsey was born in Madras, British India (now Chennai, India) in 1936, one of ten children to British Army NCO Mervyn Dorsey, who was of Welsh descent, and his wife Olive, who, according to the singer, was of German descent. Various sources also say that he has Anglo-Indian heritage. His family moved to Leicester, England, when he was ten years old. He later showed an interest in music and began learning the saxophone. By the early 1950s, he was playing saxophone in nightclubs, but he is believed not to have begun singing until he was in his late teens. His impression of Jerry Lewis prompted friends to begin calling him "Gerry Dorsey", a name that he worked under for almost a decade.
