Singer Barry Manilow was terrified of having a regular show in Las Vegas, Nevada - until he called Celine Dion and SIR Elton John. The star was considering a long running contract playing at the Hilton Hotel, but had reservations about the town's "Sin City" reputation. The COPACABANA singer decided to call Dion and John for their professional opinions on him signing for a regular gig. He explains, "I called them. They were loving it. I called Michael Crawford who had done this one little show. "When I got there... it was very hip. Las Vegas has turned very young. "It's like a combination of New York City and South Beach in Florida and I just lucked into this. "I'm there for three more years and I love it!"
