THIS DAY IN HIS­TORY

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
