Journey To The History Of Pop

His Songs Have Been Performed By Many Singers. And Now The Legendary Paul Anka Is In Istanbul!

Istanbul Golden Horn Convention Center is hosting a living legend the evening of Monday, November 14: Paul Anka, composer of memorable songs like My Way, Diana and You Are My Destiny. Listed by Billboard magazine as one of the all-time great musical icons alongside Elvis Presley and The Beatles, the Canadian singer has sold over 80 million hit albums and singles.

Anka, who earned gold records in England, France and Canada for his album, Rock Swings, on which he sings pop and rock hits from the 80’s and 90’s like Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel, the Pet Shop Boys’ It’s A Sin, Oasis’ Wonderwall and Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, all in his own inimitable style, is in Istanbul for a veritable journey through the history of pop music.

PRODUCING HITS SINCE AGE 12
Born in Canada in 1941, Paul Anka started his musical career at the age of 12. Hitting the top of the charts in the U.S. and Canada with Diana, released when he was 14, the singer put his signature on a string of hits and never slipped out of top 40 right up to his 17th year.

PAUL ANKA DAY
In honor of Paul Anka’s worldwide achievement, August 26 has been celebrated as Paul Anka Day in the Canadian city of Ottawa since 1981.
