Wayne Newton was born on April 3, 1942 in Roanoke, Virginia. A lot has come and gone since Wayne Newton first set the entertainment world on fire as a precocious, big-voiced six-year-old.
In a business that is, at best, volatile, and success sometimes short-lived, Wayne has performed live, at last count, to more than 40 million people and on television and record, to many times that number. He has epitomized the talent, glamour and energy that is Las Vegas-the entertainment capital of the world-for so long that he is called “Mr. Las Vegas.” These days, having established himself both on television and in movies as a fine actor, he’s getting more attention than ever.
