Arnold George Dorsey, or known to many by the more kitschy moniker of Engelbert Humperdinck hasn’t had the recognition he truly deserved, probably because of that ridiculous name, but this guy can sing with effortless power, superb phrasing and precision.
Famous for such hits as ‘Quando, Quando, Quando’ and ‘Release Me’, his 60s catalogue has an intoxicating, heady and romantic atmosphere that conjured up more exotic imagery than his more conservative contemporaries. I have total admiration for the man after singing songs in his style. It’s certainly not easy by any stretch and one slip can land you in some serious pub singer territory.
Below are examples of songs that feature as part of my vocal tributes show. I will be adding more songs from time to time so please keep checking if you’d like to hear more. Enjoy!
Les Bicyclettes de Belsize
The Last Waltz

“Anyone wanting to have the best singer and entertainer at their event must look no further than Mikey Powell. What an amazing night we all had at my wedding – even guests at the Hotel commented on his singing. One of my guests recorded a song he was singing and played it back – He could not believe how close to the real thing he sounded. An outstanding tribute act and the nicest person we had the pleasure to meet. Everyone was up dancing to his unbelievable talent. We would recommend him without a doubt as one of the best. Thank you Mikey, you are a star x”
