MIAMI – The legendary singer Vic Damone passed away at the age of 89, his family told Fox News.
Damone, whose smooth baritone led Frank Sinatra to famously declare he “had the best pipes in the business,” died at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Fla. Sunday surrounded by several close relatives, FOX News reported Monday.
Damone starred in several television series, including “The Vic Damone Show” on NBC, and hit movies including “Kismet” and “Rich, Young and Pretty.”
