Biography

Singer and actor Wayne Newton was as synonymous to Las Vegas as casinos, neon lights, and marquee boxing matches. The "Danke Schoen" (German for "Thank You") singer was called many nicknames, including "The Midnight Idol" and "The King of Las Vegas," after having performed more than 30,000 nightly shows during his career, including an exclusive 10-year deal with the Stardust Hotel, where a showroom was even named after him. Newton was also well known for his work with the U.S. Armed Forces, visiting troops as Chairman of the USO Celebrity Circle, a title he received in 2001, succeeding legendary comic Bob Hope. While most men his age were settling into their golden years, Newton surprised and delighted so many of his fans by appearing on the hit show "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ).
