Stanley Robert "Bobby" Vinton (born April 16, 1935) is an American singer and songwriter who briefly appeared in films. In pop music circles, as a teen idol, he became known as "The Polish Prince," as his music pays tribute to his Polish heritage. One of his most popular songs is "Blue Velvet," a cover of Tony Bennett's 1951 song, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1963 and number two in the UK in 1990. It also served as inspiration for the film of the same title, in which Isabella Rossellini sang a portion of the song itself. It has been re-issued numerous times in conjuction with films and other commercial tie-ins.
