City honours Tony Bennett for song

More than 1,000 people gathered on Valentine's Day to honour singer Tony Bennett and the 50th anniversary of his famous song, I Left My Heart In San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chronicle said a symphony, children's chorus and the Gay Men's Chorus sang the famous song to Bennett, 85, during a ceremony held at San Francisco's City Hall.

The tune had its first public performance in December 1961 in the Venetian Room of the Fairmont Hotel, where Bennett sang later that night.

Bennett's version of the song was played throughout the city on radio and in public performances at Union Square in honour of the holiday.

The song has become a part of San Francisco culture, and is played after every home victory for the Giants baseball team.
