Keck's Exclusives: Barry Manilow to Headline PBS's A Capitol Fourth

He's ready to take a chance again. Barry Manilow will to return to the west lawn of our nation's capitol on July 4 to headline PBS's annual A Capitol Fourth live concert event.

Manilow performed at the concert four years ago and tells me his best memory occurred as he was belting out his inspirational classic, "Let Freedom Ring." "On the last key change, as the song built to the most powerful moment, the most brilliant fireworks shot into the sky and continued until the last note of the song," recalls Manilow, who will conclude this year's performance with the same number. "The fireworks were timed precisely and exactly to the beat of the modulation. It was one of the most thrilling moments I can remember."

On Wednesday's The Talk, the ladies and guest host Somers sat down with Manilow, who was promoting his new album, "15 Minutes." The BFFs revealed that they...read more

Barry Manilow Brings the '70s Back to Life

When he burst onto the music scene with "Mandy" in '74, Barry Manilow invented the power ballad and in the process changed prom songs forever. The rest of the Me Decade would prove the singer unstoppable (even by critics) as he produced a string of hits and created a loyal following of fans who found in his lush music an escape from the hard rock of the times. These days the Brooklyn boy is still making good, with a new CD for the holidays, In the Swing of Christmas (available at Hallmark stores), and a TV special, Barry Manilow: Songs from the Seventies (premiering Dec. 3 on PBS, check TV Guide listings), proving that much like the power ballad, Manilow will never go out of style. TVGuide.com: It seem like you're busier than ever.Barry Manilow: Just when I think I'm done it explodes again, I'm just amazed. I g read more
