On the surface, singer Thalia and American crooner Tony Bennett don’t seem to have much in common, but their mutual love of music creates sparks with their duet ‘The way you look tonight’.
The track is just one of 12 new duets featuring Bennett and Latino superstars like Christina Aguilera, Marc Anthony, Juan Luis Guerra and Vicente Fernandez on Bennett’s new album “Viva duets”.
“See, the one thing about the latin singers, the majority of music that latinos love, that the public loves of the latinos, is they sing from the heart” said Bennett in a recent interview with the Associated Press of his decision to do an album with well-known latin singers. And that doesn’t go away.
“That makes the record never sound old-fashioned. There’s some gimmick that’s popular for 10 weeks and then forgotten. But here, there was so much feeling in their performances that it will always sound good. Twenty years from now the same record will sound good because it has the feeling. They all sing with so much feeling and the public responds with so much feeling.”
