Bobby Vinton (born April 16, 1935) is an American pop music singer.

Born Stanley Robert Vinton in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania suburb of Canonsburg, after a brief spell in the US Army, in 1962 Vinton recorded his first single titled "Roses are Red (My Love)". It went to No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Arguably his most famous song is 1963's "Blue Velvet" that also went to No.1. In 1964, Vinton had two No.1 hits, "There! I've Said It Again" and "Mr. Lonely", the latter now being the basis for Akon's hit "Lonely".

In the 1970s he had a few more hits such as "My Melody of Love" which was partially sung in Polish and the cover of Brian Hyland's "Sealed With A Kiss".

In the course of his career, Vinton has sold over 75 million records, and is still performing, on tour and at the Bobby Vinton Blue Velvet Theatre in Branson, Missouri.

In recognition of his recording career, Bobby Vinton has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6916 Hollywood Blvd.
