Barry Alan Pincus was born on June 17, 1943 in Brooklyn, New York. Raised Jewish, Barry’s name was changed to Manilow, his mother’s maiden name, at the time of his Bar Mitzvah. Manilow is known for many hit songs such as: “Could It Be Magic,” “Mandy,” and “Copacabana.” He has sold over 80 million records worldwide and has also gathered many honors and awards regarding his music including: three straight American Music Awards (1977-1979), a Grammy (1979), two Emmy Awards (1977, 2006) and a Tony (1977). Manilow was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002. In his early days, Manilow was a commercial jingle writer. State Farm Insurance’s (“Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.”) and Band-Aid’s (“I am stuck on Band-Aid, ‘cause Band-Aid’s stuck on me!”) were just a couple jingles made by Manilow.
