Biografía

Both as a hit songwriter and
leading performer, Neil Diamond has enjoyed an incredibly successful career
with over 115 million worldwide record sales. Born January 24, 1941 in
Brooklyn, New York to a Jewish family descended from Russian and Polish
immigrants, he originally planned to be a doctor, but was diverted when his
musical talent was noticed and he was offered a job writing songs for a
publishing company. He made his recording debut in the duo Neil & Jack with
school friend Jack Packer. Although they failed to achieve success, his
breakthrough as a songwriter came when The Monkees took his song “I'm a
Believer”
to number 1. Elvis Presley, Lulu, and Cliff Richard also recorded
his material while Diamond had his first hit in his own right with “Solitary
Man”
in 1966. His hits of the 1970s included “Cracklin' Rosie”, “Sweet
Caroline”
, and “You Don't Bring Me Flowers” which have since become
among the most recorded songs of all time. In the '80s he starred in a remake
of The Jazz Singer through which he had three top 10 singles – “Love
On the Rocks”
,  “Hello Again”,
and “America” - and he was asked to sing the National Anthem at the
Super Bowl in 1987. The '90s brought a resurgence in the popularity of “Sweet
Caroline”
as it featured regularly at sporting events. He was inducted into
the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and awarded the Billboard Icon Award
and the Kennedy Center Honors in 2011, with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star
coming in 2012. Melody Road, his first album under Capitol Records (his
32nd overall), was released in 2014 and an anniversary album, Neil Diamond
50 - 50th Anniversary Collection
was released in 2017. He announced his
retirement from touring in 2018 but continues to write music.
He
reworked songs from his catalogue in a different setting for 2020’s Classic
Diamonds with the London Symphony Orchestra
