Music legend Tony Bennett turns 90 and he is celebrating his birthday with a star-studded party organised by his friends and family.

The 19-time Grammy winner’s party was filled with some of music’s biggest names – from former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder to Bennett’s longtime friend and frequent music collaborator Lady Gaga, reports People.

“I understand a lot of my friends and colleagues are gonna be here so I’m thrilled about it,” Bennett told PEOPLE before the festivities began. “I’m very honoured.”

Bennett’s pals gave him superstar performances – including Golden Globe winner Gaga and Wonder, who teamed up for a rendition of his 1970s Motown classic “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”

It was a star-studded audience which also included actor John Travolta, 62, and Hollywood action man Bruce Willis.

There were two birthday cakes – one shaped like the Empire State Building and the other like the Statue of Liberty, according to Express.

Bennett said: “The whole experience is going to take me a long time to think about.

“And I just love every moment of what’s happening today.”

“This is a day I’ll never forget as long as I live. To be treated this way at 90 years old, I feel like I’m 19 years old.

“It’s a wonderful treat. It’s one of the very special things in my whole life.”

The Stranger In Paradise singer said he was determined not to slow down and he revealed he would love to do a duet with Beyonce.

He said: “I understand she’s going to be part of a gigantic special that’s being done about my life.

“So I’m looking forward to that.”

Happy birthday, Tony!
