Barry Manilow Biography

Barry Manilow born Barry Alan Pincus, is an American singer-songwriter, arranger, musician, and producer. He was born on June 17, 1943 in Brooklyn, New York to Edna Manilow and Harold Pincus. He grew up in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

He graduated from Eastern District High School in 1961. He enrolled in the City College of New York where he briefly studied before entering the New York College of Music. He also worked at CBS while he was a student in order to pay his expenses. He later studied Musical Theater at the Juilliard performing arts school.

He has recorded and released 47 Top 40 singles, including 12 that hit number one and 27 of which appeared within the top ten, and has released many multi-platinum albums. Although not a favorite artist of music critics, Manilow has been praised by entertainers including Frank Sinatra, who was quoted in the 1970s as saying, “He’s next.” In 1988, Bob Dylan stopped Manilow at a party, hugged him and said, “Don’t stop what you’re doing, man. We’re all inspired by you.”

As well as producing and arranging albums for other artists, including Bette Midler and Dionne Warwick, Manilow has written songs for musicals, films, and commercials. From February 2005 to December 2009, he was the headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, performing hundreds of shows before ending his relationship with the hotel.
