Barry Manilow

When Barry Manilow married his longtime partner and business manager Garry Kief in 2014, the small unofficial ceremony at the couple’s Palm Springs home was reportedly the antithesis of the high-glitz Vegas lounge act the “Copacabana” singer has headlined for years now. “We just went ‘Tap, tap, tap’ on a glass and ‘I just wanted to tell you all that Garry and I got married,’” Manilow told The Desert Sun in December. No official documents were filed and news of the wedding was first leaked to the National Enquirer by unnamed sources a year after the fact, but Manilow, who does not discuss Kief or any other aspect of his personal life onstage, told the Sun he was ultimately glad the news got out. “I don’t know who gave that information to the Enquirer, but, you can just say I was thrilled about the reaction to it,” he said of the overwhelming support he received from “Fanilows” in response to the news. The 72-year-old singer-songwriter, who went from writing commercial jingles and playing piano behind Bette Midler in New York’s famed Continental Baths to become a platinum-selling artist on the strength of such singles as “I Write the Songs” and “Mandy,” is currently on his “One Last Time” tour — reportedly his final go-round filling arenas worldwide — news that certainly upsets the average Fanilow more than any belated wedding announcement ever would.
