Barry Manilow and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra 

There's death, taxes, and Barry Manilow. Manilow's career has simply been decades of atmospheric success. In 1978, five of his albums were on the best-selling charts simultaneously. He has owned the Adult Contemporary charts for almost 40 years as a performer and producer, working with greats such as Bette Midler and Dionne Warwick, as well as writing songs for musicals, films, and TV commercials. He's won two Emmys, three American Music Awards, a Tony, a Grammy, and was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2002. He was the headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton for almost five years. He's done it all. But now he is getting back to basics. Last summer's "15 Minutes" marked the Brooklyn boy's first release of original songs in more than 10 years. It debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Like I said: death, taxes, and Manilow.
