Barry Manilow (born Barry Alan Pincus in Brooklyn, New York on June 17, 1943) is an American singer and songwriter. Manilow dominated the 1970s soft rock scene with a string of top ten hits and multi-platinum albums. Despite the frequent barbs from lousy critics, both Manilow's fans and music continue to soldier on as evidenced by the No. 1 debut of his 2002 greatest hits album, Ultimate Manilow, and being dubbed "showman of our generation" by Rolling Stone.
Early in his career, Manilow worked as a pianist, producer, and arranger, accompanying performers like Bette Midler. Manilow's solo hits include: "Mandy" (1974), "Looks Like We Made It" (1976), "Copacabana (At The Copa)" (1978), "I Write The Songs" (1975), "Somewhere In The Night" (1978), "I Made It Through The Rain" (1980), "Let's Hang On" (1981), "Turn The Radio Up" (2001), and "They Dance!" (2001).
Although not all of Manilow's hits were written by him (the most notable and ironic instance being, "I Write The Songs," which was written by lyricist Bruce Johnston), he co-wrote a musical with librettist Bruce Sussman titled Harmony, which was scheduled to be produced in Philadelphia in 2003. After financial difficulties and a legal battle, Manilow and Sussman won back the rights to the musical, which was produced on stage in 2005. Manilow's "Copacabana" has also been turned into a stage musical, which toured in 2003.
