Barry Manilow has sold more than 80 million records worldwide - including the recent 15 Minutes - and has won the American Music Award for Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist three times.

Manilow's hits include Mandy, Copacabana, Friends, Could It Be Magic, Can't Smile Without You and I Write the Songs.
