LIBERACE

Liberace (Born Władziu Valentino Liberace, also known as Walter
Busterkeys and Walter Liberace)


(May 16, 1919 – February 4, 1987)

Liberace was entertainment’s highest-paid performer during the 1950s,
60s, and 70s. He was known for his flamboyant, excessive showmanship.

Before fame he played at cabarets and strip clubs during the day of the
Great Depression. His highly successful syndicated television began July
1, 1952 and ran until 1969.

He adopted the popular World War II song I’ll Be Seeing You, written by
Sammy Fain and Irving Kahal, as his theme, which he sang at the end of
every television broadcast.
