I have my question about my lifetime favourite singer and song writer, Barry Manilow. I have been watching him since my childhood and have always been curious knowing about him. For this reason, I would like to know when Barry Manilow was born, his present age and what is the exact date, day and the month of his birth?

    Barry Manilow will be turning 68 on the 17th of June this year. He was born June 17, 1946, in Brooklyn, New York. Two years after the birth, his father deserted the family, and Manilow was raised by his mother and grandparents. They were poor and lived in a deteriorating slum area of Brooklyn. It is believed to be at this approximate time that he decided to change his family name for his own professional name. For this reason Barry went on to eventually adopt the maiden name of Manilow that belonged to her mother. After his mother remarried in the late 1950s, his stepfather, a jazz enthusiast, took him to hear saxophonist Gerry Mulligan. This broadened the interest of young musician, and he began buying jazz and Broadway musical albums. Unlike most of his peers, Barry was not drawn to the rock and roll that was sweeping the country during his adolescence. After Manilow graduated from high school he entered the City College of New York to study advertising. However, quickly bored by marketing courses, he left for the New York College of Music. Due to lack of funds he never graduated, but he continued his studies at the Juilliard School while supporting himself with a job in the mail room at the New York City headquarters of CBS.
