Paul Anka, the Ottawa born singer, songwriter, and actor – who transcended the `50s, `60s, and `70s with hit songs such as "Diana", "Lonely Boy", "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", and "(You`re) Having My Baby" – is the latest and final inductee into the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards, as recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Anka wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Tom Jones`s hit, "She`s a Lady", as well as the English lyrics on Claude François and Jacques Revaux`s music for Frank Sinatra`s signature song, "My Way". He was inducted into Canada`s Walk of Fame in 2005.
In 1983, he co-wrote the song "I Never Heard" with Michael Jackson. It was retitled and released in 2009 under the name "This Is It". An additional song that Jackson co-wrote with Anka from this 1983 session, "Love Never Felt So Good", was released on Jackson`s posthumous album Xscape in 2014.
The event is staged at Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto on May 10.
