At five years old, Michael would start learning the piano but struggled since he was more comfortable playing by ear, so his mother took him out of lessons and allowed him to learn his own way. After matriculating from high school, he would start to pursue a career in music.

Feinstein played in local piano bars for two years before moving to Los Angeles when he was 20 years old, where Ira Gershwin hired him to catalogue his large collection of phonograph records; over the next six years, he catalogued and preserved unpublished music of the Gershwins. In 1983, Michael became the musical consultant for the Broadway show entitled “My One and Only”, and started to build up his popularity, becoming well known as a cabaret singer-pianist. His work on the Great American Songbook was also getting attention. He recorded his first CD in 1987 called “Pure Gershwin”, and followed it up with “Remember: Michael Feinstein Sings Irving Berlin”. He then released “Isn’t It Romantic” – a collection of standards – and “Over There”, music from World War I. He also recorded a children’s album called “Pure Imagination” which was released in 1992.

Around this time, Michael started appearing in a series of Broadway shows, before working on a songbook project, collaborating with several composers. Some of his next few releases would include Burton Lane, Jule Styne, and Jerry Herman. In the late 1990s, he released more Gershwin music in albums such as “Nice Work If You Can Get It: Songs by the Gershwins”. The Library of Congress would appoint Michael to be part of the National Recording Preservation Board in 2000, and in 2009 he would become the artistic director of The Center for the Performing Arts. Around the same time, he partnered with Cheyenne Jackson and would create a nightclub act called “The Power of Two”, which gained a lot of critical acclaim.

Feinstein has appeared in several television shows, talk shows, and documentaries; he hosted the radio program “Song Travels with Michael Feinstein” distributed by NPR. In 2012, he was named as the Principal Pops Conductor for the Pasadena POPS and his debut received critical acclaim. He released a memoir called “The Gershwins and Me: A Personal History in Twelve Songs” about working for Ira Gershwin. One of his latest projects is “Michael Feinstein at the Rainbow Room”. His contract with the Pasadena POPS has also been extended through 2019.

For his personal life, it is known that Michael married longtime partner Terrence Flannery in 2008. Their wedding was conducted by Judge Judy and the couple have homes in locations including Los Angeles, Indiana and New York.

#Fact
1 Cousin of Alan Barinholtz, Ike Barinholtz, Jon Barinholtz.
2 In 1988, his one-man Broadway show called "Isn't It Romantic: Michael Feinstein in Concert" made him famous.
3 Started playing in piano bars right out of high school to support himself
4 Member of the Library of Congress National Recording Preservation Board
5 Was introduced to Ira Gershwin through Oscar Levant's widow, June. Michael revered Ira and George Gershwin, and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of the pair's work. Michael recounted many stories he knew about the two during his first meeting with Ira, and he was so impressed with the young man that he made him his assistant for 6 years.
6 Has a talent for finding "lost," older songs, and breathing new life into them, thereby preserving great music for future generations.
7 Known to many as the "Ambassador of the Great American Songbook." His repertoire as a singer/pianist includes songs by many great American songwriters, such as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer, Duke Ellington and Harry Warren.
8 Owns his own nightclub in Manhattan, Feinstein's at the Regency, which is the premier showcase for cabaret performers. Feinstein himself plays a sold-out show there during the holidays every year.
9 Started playing piano by ear at age 5. Took piano lessons for a couple of months until his teacher became angered that he wasn't reading the music she gave him to play. Since Michael's mother saw no problem with her son's method, she took him out of lessons and allowed him to enjoy music his own way.
10 Father, Edward, used to be a singer and also a sales executive for the Sara Lee Corporation. Mother, Maizie, tap dances semi-professionally.
11 Grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and moved to LA when he was 19 (where he met Ira Gershwin)

#Quote
1 I feel it is important to keep writing and creating more music at a time when we truly need it. Music is healing and significant not only as an art but as a means of creating a transformation.
2 I loved the music that my parents listened to rather than what was on the radio at the time. I was very enamored with show music and I listened to a lot of the music that I now perform.
3 There's definitely a physical feeling performing with an orchestra because our bodies are made up of vibrations and all music that is acoustically-based resonates with the vibrations of the body. So to be onstage with all those instruments vibrating - the emotional effect is thrilling. It's like a high; a wonderful legal high.
4 "The MGM story is just one example of music that's vanishing all the time. We're talking about a unique piece of our cultural history, and for me it's like a death in the family every time we learn that something else has disappeared." (About MGM's 1970 clean-out of priceless film scores, musical manuscripts, and recordings to cut storage costs)
5 "I was secretive about what I did, what I listened to. It was clear that my friends - what friends I had - would laugh at me. The fact is, I didn't have many friends." (about his early love of music)
6 (About how Michael annoyed his sister because he could duplicate whatever she practiced on the keyboard) "At one point she was practicing "Malaguena" over and over again. As soon as she finished, I could sit down and play the piece, because I had heard it enough times. It used to make her nuts."
7 My life is music. It has always been music, and it will always be music.
