After secretly marrying his manager of 40 years, Mr B Manilow has come out publically with a positive response from his fans and music lovers. “I’m so private,” he said. “I always have been. I thought I would be disappointing them (fans) if they knew I was gay. So I never did anything.”

“They were so happy. The reaction was beautiful – strangers commenting: ‘Great for you!’ I’m just so grateful for it.”

“I have not read one negative response… I don’t know, maybe they care about everybody, but for me, it is so moving, it is so deep that these strangers were so happy that I was happy. That I wasn’t alone, that I had somebody that was with me that I loved and that we’d been together for 37 years. We’re in great shape and I was very grateful for that response”, Manilow commented in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Most well-known for hits “Mandy,” “Copacabana” and “Looks Like We Made It”.
