At 9 p.m. on Dec. 20, Bennett will receive a belated birthday celebration when NBC airs “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best is Yet to Come.” Performes on the show include Billy Joel, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Bennett’s jazz collaboration buddy, Lady Gaga ( Bennett last played Atlanta with Gaga at Chastain in July 2015 ).
The iconic singer also recently released a new memoir, “Just Getting Started.”
