The connection between the two is something we simply have to admire. We’ve seen many articles about Tony Bennett online and in tabloids, but today this article doesn’t focus on him, instead, we take a brief look at his third wife, Susan Crow.
Crow is perhaps best known as the wife of the legendary singer, but those familiar with charity work and philanthropy have certainly heard that her name has appeared once or twice at various charity and fundraising events.
