Now, Englebert Humperdinck hopes to inspire a wave of global patriotism with his newest song.
Today (Sept. 12), the 60s-era crooner jump-starts his 40th anniversary as a hit recording artists with a new concert DVD and CD called Englebert Humperdinck: Totally Amazing.
One of the tracks is a new song called Columns Of Gray, which he describes as a tribute to slain soldiers in all countries and was inspired by the war casualty markers found around the globe that are etched in gold.
The British-born singer figures the tune will resonate especially with Americans lately, but also the world as well which is why he is donating all the proceeds to soldiers and their families everywhere.
The new recordings are just the start of what figures to be a very busy year for Humperdinck: In 2007, he marks the 40th anniversary of his first hit, Release Me, with plans for a new disc featuring renditions of his songs by Sting, Elton John and James Blunt.
