From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Antonia Bennett (born April 7, 1974) is an American singer of adult alternative music, standards, and jazz. She is a daughter of singer Tony Bennett and actress Sandra Grant.

Bennett trained as an actor at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.[1] She then became an alumna of the Berklee College of Music in Boston.[2] Beginning in the mid-2000s, she began to appear as an opening act or guest at her father's shows.[2] In 2013 she was married to Ronen Helmann, an Israeli;[3] around the same time, she converted to Judaism.[4]

In 2002, The New York Times' Stephen Holden compared Bennett's voice to that of Billie Holiday, Rickie Lee Jones, and even Betty Boop.[5] A JazzTimes profile from 2010 said that her voice does not resemble her father's and instead compared her to Jane Monheit and Nellie McKay.[1]

Bennett's debut album Embrace Me, a treatment of standards from the Great American Songbook, was released on Perseverance Records in 2014.[2][6] It followed the release of EP in 2010 called Natural[1] and a digital-only album in 2012.[2]
