Paul Anka is a true enigma: a hard-nosed businessman who keeps his personal life under wraps while moving the audience with soul-baring, sentimental love songs. In homage to the 1962 National Film Board of Canada documentary, Lonely Boy, this fascinating program intercuts black and white scenes of the teen idol preparing for a performance in Atlantic City with color footage of today's sophisticated performer wowing the crowds in Las Vegas.
Destiny features candid recollections by Anka, behind-the-scenes clips from his concerts, and poignant reminiscences by family and friends. They offer glimpses into the life of a songwriter and performer who has provoked both adoration and criticism. And after nearly five decades, Anka is still on top of his game - a true survivor of generations of musical taste and trends.
Paul Anka is a long-established Las Vegas performer who began his career as a teen singing sensation. This release offers a chance to view Anka's early and late career as vintage concert footage of the young pop performer is interspersed with a latter period Vegas show. Some revealing behind the scenes footage is also included, making this a great package for Anka's many fans.
