Elegance, style, sophistication, integrity, longevity – these are just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking about Tony Bennett. He is considered an international treasure and has been honored by the United Nations with its Citizen of the World award. Not only has he maintained strong ties with his longtime fans, but he has also completely smashed the generation gap and captured the hearts of countless younger admirers. With 105 albums, 15 Grammy awards and over 50 million records sold, he is a true American icon. A tribute to Tony Bennett will be held at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center on February 10 at 6:30 pm.
Mitch Seekins, a professional singer for over 25 years, carries himself with much of the same relaxed, elegant, charismatic style as Bennett himself. While not a note-for-note, look-alike tribute artist, Mitch provides an experience that celebrates the music and accomplishments of Tony Bennett. His voice possesses a wonderful richness that carries through Bennett’s music perfectly.
Mitch’s respect for Bennett and passion for his music led him to develop Mitch Seekins Sings the Great Tony Bennett. In this show full of anecdotes and interesting tidbits, the audience is treated to a glimpse into the career and legacy of one of the world’s most beloved artists. Featuring multimedia stills and video throughout, this show is a theatrical delight and an evening of just plain extraordinary music.
