Tom Jones is a Welsh-born pop singer with a powerful voice and dynamic performing style who became famous in the mid 1960s. In 1965, he debuted on the charts with "It's Not Unusual." His best known songs also include "What's New Pussycat?" (1965), "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" (1969), "Without Love (There Is Nothing)" (1970), "She's A Lady" (1971), and "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow" (1977). From 1969-1971, he had his own internationally famous TV variety show, "This Is Tom Jones," and from 1980-1981, he also hosted "The Tom Jones Show."
Throughout his career, this versatile singer has performed in a wide range of musical styles ranging from pop-rock, country, and show tunes to R&B, soul, and gospel. From 1965-1973, after a long string of pop hits, he switched to mostly country music around the mid 1970s. The chart topping "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow" was his debut on the Country charts in 1977, and he charted many more Country Chart hits thereafter. He reappeared on the Pop/Rock charts in 1989 with "Kiss" (as The Art Of Noise Featuring Tom Jones).
