Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gerard Kenny (born Gerard W. Kenny, 8 July 1947, New York) is a popular music singer-songwriter. Kenny formed his first band whilst in high school and between then, and the early 1970s, he toured the club circuit. In 1968 he landed his first recording contract with Warner Bros. Records, and from that point until 1977 issued a number of singles that failed to break the charts. It was not until 1978 after moving to England that he scored his first hit single with "New York, New York" (an ode to his hometown) which spent two months in the UK Singles Chart, with its parent album Made It Through The Rain going Top 20 the following year. Another single on the RCA record label, "Fantasy" proved to be another chart hit in 1980. His composition "I Could Be So Good For You" was reco by Dennis Waterman for the theme tune of the ITV series Minder and became a Top 10 hit single in the United Kingdom during 1980. It also gained an Ivor Novello Award for Kenny. In 1983, he began to work with Alan Jay Lerner on a musical adaption of My Man Godfrey, but Lerner died before it could be completed.show more
