Tony Bennett’s son Danny has revealed the late crooner’s final words before he passed away in July.
“His last words to me (were), ‘Thank you,’” Danny Bennett told “Today” show co-anchor Hoda Kotb on Aug. 3.
“Can’t say it better than that.”
Danny added, “We’d take him to the doctor and he’d go, ‘What am I– why am I here?’
“We would leave. And Tony’s like, ‘Susan. I’m really okay. We don’t have to come back.’”
Susan shared that her late husband sang until the very end, and revealed the final song he performed for her was his very first hit, “Because of You.”
“The music never left him.”
The “New York State of Mind” singer died on July 21. He was 96.
His late-in-life collaborator, Lady Gaga, paid tribute to Tony about 10 days after his death, writing that she would miss her friend “forever.”
