Forty yearsafter his early hits Enge is still at the very top, selling out concerts across the world and evenrepresenting the UK at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, recording his entry in London, Nashville, and Los Angeles. Inspired by the warmth of his millions of affectionate fans and the endless support of his wife, Engelbert shares his incredible life story with openness, humor, and astonishing honesty."
