A star at any age

An entertainer extraordinaire, Engelbert Humperdinck is a role model for seniors.

I am so impressed with the King of Romance who, at the age of 80, is able to keep his audience mesmerised with his singing (Humpy's Humdinger Of An Evening, Life, July 18).

One never gets tired listening to his hits as he possesses such a rich voice, backed by a fantastic orchestra and choir. This star most certainly has proven beyond a shadow of doubt that age should never be a barrier for seniors to be the best that they can be.
