Perry Como’s career spanned more than 50 years. Born in 1912, he sold millions of records for RCA and pioneered a weekly musical variety television show, which set the standards for the genre and proved to be one of the most successful shows in television history. The pop ballad “Till the End of Time” was the first song that Perry Como sold more than one million copies of and marked the beginning of his very successful recording career. He went on to become the first artist to have 10 records sell more than one million copies. Join us for a loving and memorable musical tribute to the one and only Perry Como.
