Damone was born Vito Farinola on June 12, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York. At age 17 he tried out for Arthur Godfrey on the "Talent Scouts" program and won first prize. He soon became a popular recording star and was a regular on TV variety shows. His talent really developed as he began to work the major clubs. His talent matured by the turn of the decade, and he had learned how to be a major crowd pleaser. He made his first movie in 1951, "Rich, Young and Pretty", and other hit movies included "Kismet", "Meet Me in Las Vegas", "Hit the Deck", and "Hell to Eternity".
Damone had been successful guesting on many TV shows, and in 1956 he was given the first of his regular shows, "The Vic Damone Show". He remained through the late 1960's with a regular show during much of that time, including summer replacement for Dean Martin at the end of the 1960's.
Known for his astonishingly youthful appearance, Vic is a better performer than ever. This mix of contemporary and classic love songs shows his talent in rare form. From "Over the Rainbow" to "Windmills of Your Mind", no one can sing a love song the way Vic Damone can.
