Jerry Vale

Jerry Vale's beautiful high-tenor voice graced many of the most enchanting pop songs of the '50s and '60s, including a parade of Italian-American favorites like "Innamorata (Sweetheart)," "Volare," "Amore, Scusami," and his signature song, "Al Di La." Vale, born Genaro Louis Vitaliano in 1932, learned the Italian repertoire from an early age; his mother often sang around the house and trotted out the old songs at extended-family gatherings. While shining shoes at a local barber shop at the age of 11, young Vitaliano began singing popular songs for customers while he worked. He was soon sent to a vocal coach, where he learned piano as well as voice. Over the course of just four years, he'd progressed from school productions to paying gigs to residencies at supper clubs around New York City.

After Guy Mitchell caught his set at one club, Jerry Vale began recording demonstration discs for Columbia. When A&R supremo Mitch Miller heard his excellent voice, however, he signed Vale to his own contract. Vale first hit the charts in 1953 with "You Can Never Give Me Back My Heart" (arranged by Percy Faith), and continued during the mid-'50s with "Two Purple Shadows," "I Live Each Day," and his biggest hit, "You Don't Know Me." Though his first explicitly Italian recording, "Innamorata (Sweetheart)," finally appeared in 1956, it wasn't until 1962 that Vale convinced the notoriously conservative Miller to record a full album of Italian songs. I Have But One Heart proved a big seller and was followed one year later by Arrivederci, Roma and a continental LP, The Language of Love, both of which placed even higher than the first on the album charts.

Though the mid-'60s were a trying time for traditional pop singers, Vale continued to be successful, with singles like "Have You Looked Into Your Heart" and "For Mama," and Top 40 LPs like There Goes My Heart and It's Magic. And even after his albums began failing to make the charts in the early '70s, Vale remained a popular name in clubs and on television throughout the '70s and '80s. ~ John Bush

Jerry Vale had a great voice and produced some nice albums in the 1970's. I have several of his recordings and still listen to them nearly 40 years after purchasing them. RIP Jerry.

As a now-retired singer with the Army Chorus for 30 years, I can truly say that Jerry Vale and Vic Damone were such great artists. Purity poured over their vocal cords. The Goodfellas cameo was Vale at his finest! Thank you, and all the others of that generation! Still a pleasure to listen to.

HIS LOVE

His tears were shed on the
mountain by the way of the cross
his life he gave to save our
our world from loss

Each day I walk this mountain
path by faith I'm left to climb
I pray he lets me enter
when I leave this world behind
