THIS DAY IN HISTORY
On this day in 1975, Mandy became Barry Manilow’s first number one pop hit.
It was the first of many, with It’s a Miracle, I Write the Songs and Looks Like We Made It all becoming top 40 hits between 1975 and 1983.
Such hits helped earn Manilow recognition by Billboard and Radio and Records as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time.
He would go on to sell more than 75 millions records over the course of his career.
