“Paul Anka” is making a stop in Branson for 2017! “Paul” is known as a singer, songwriter and actor and his career truly began in 1957 when the rapid and enormous success of Diana- his first number one hit – made him a star. That was followed by hits like Lonely Boy, Puppy Love, and Put Your Head on My Shoulder.
“Paul” was the youngest entertainer to ever perform at the Copa Cabana, and honed his craft surrounded by the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Frankie Lyman, and Chuck Berry. Among his proudest accomplishments was writing the Academy Award-nominated theme for The Longest Day, the 1962 film in which he also starred.
He wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and one of Tom Jones's biggest hits, She's a Lady, as well as the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra's signature song, My Way, which has been covered by many including Elvis Presley. “Paul Anka” also co-wrote the song I Never Heard, later released under the name of This Is It, with Michael Jackson.
