Paul Albert Anka OC (born July 30, 1941) is a Canadian-American singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for his signature hit songs including “Diana“, “Lonely Boy“, “Put Your Head on My Shoulder“, and “(You’re) Having My Baby“. Anka also wrote the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson; one of Tom Jones‘ biggest hits, “She’s a Lady“; and the English lyrics to Claude François and Jacques Revaux‘s music for Frank Sinatra‘s signature song “My Way“, which has been recorded by many, including Elvis Presley. He co-wrote three songs with Michael Jackson: “This Is It” (originally titled “I Never Heard”) “Love Never Felt So Good“, and “Don’t Matter to Me“.
Paul Anka recorded his first single, “I Confess”, when he was 14. In 1956, with $100 given to him by his uncle, he went to New York City where he auditioned for Don Costa at ABC Records, singing what was widely believed to be a lovestruck verse he had written to a former babysitter.
