From The LA Times:
Jerry Vale, a smooth-voiced singer who reached the top of the pop charts in the 1950s and '60s with his interpretations of romantic ballads, died Sunday at his home in Palm Desert. He was 83. Vale's attorney, Harold J. Levy, confirmed his death after a long illness.

If I don't induct the worthy (if not urgent) candidates into the Television Crossover Hall Of Fame upon learning of the relevant death, I tend to forget.  So that's why the televersion if Jerry Vale is joining the TVXOHOF in a month usually reserved for the Queens of May. 

Here are the shows that qualified him for entry in the League of Themselves wing:

'Who's the Boss?'
- "The Fabulous Robinson Sisters" (1990)

'Growing Pains'
- "Divorce Story" (1990)
- "Midnight Cowboy" (1990)
- "Weekend at Mike's" (1990)

'Midnight Caller'
- "That's AmorĂ©" (1991) 

Vale's presence in these TV shows has no connection to his portrayal of himself in movies like "Casino" and "Goodfellas".  Those "cineversions" do make him a Multi-versal, however. 

Good night and may God bless....
