Neil Diamond (who is also known jokingly as the The Jewish Elvis) is a successful singer and songwriter of pop music. He has had many hits over the decades with that majority in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. The musician has a very large following and his fans are often considered lifelong. His performances generally cause a lot of excitement and are covered extensively by the media. The songs he has both written and performed have been thought of as timeless and his music is frequently "covered" by other bands. He is well known for wearing colourful sequin and sparkly shirts in concert.
Neil Diamond has sold hundreds of millions of records over his long career and he is arguably one of the most famous Jewish musicians in the world. However his original life goal was not music - but medicine. His dream was to be a laboratory biologist and to find a cure for cancer. I feel that instead he has found a cure for depression - by making his millions of fans and listeners incredibly happy.
