‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’

TBennett1 Fifty Five years ago this December, Tony Bennett first sang ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’ in the Fairmont Hotel’s Venetian Room. The Fairmont honored the occasion today with the unveiling of a statue of the singer who recently celebrated his 90th birthday. On hand were former San Francisco mayors Dianne Feinstein and Willie Brown, Nancy Pelosi, and Tony Bennett himself. A passing California Street cable car stopped for the ceremony and the conductor played ‘I Left My heart in San Francisco’ on the cable car bell.  TBennett2 After a mist of imitation San Francisco fog for effect, the statue was unveiled.
