Newton made his debut into his lifetime career in 1962 when he was a major actor on the Jackie Gleason Show. He also landed a role on the classic western TV series “Bonanza.” By 1963, Newton had been signed to Capitol Records and his first album, “Danke Schoen” was released. It was immediately a massive hit and reached No. 13 on the Billboard charts. This became his signature song and was even used in the soundtrack for “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” in 1986.
Prominent entertainment icons at the time like Lucille Ball, Bobby Darin, and Jack Benny showed Newton their support when they were first starting out. Benny hired Newton as an opening act for his show and subsequently Newton was given a headlining act at the Flamingo Hotel. In 1972, his recording of “Daddy, Don’t You Walk So Far” sold over 1 million copies. Newton went on to replace the Beach Boys and The Grass Roots at the 1983 Independence Day celebration at the Washington Mall. James G. Watt, President Reagan’s Secretary of the Interior, had banned concerts by rock groups, citing that they encouraged drug and alcohol use and attracted the “wrong element.” Newton was a friend and support of Reagan and a contributor to the Republican Party. He was met on the Independence Day stage on the Mall on July 4, 1983 to mostly cheers but some boos as well
In December 1992, Newton hit #1 on the Cashbox Pop and Country charts with “The Letter.” However, for the first time in history, a record hit #1 on the Cashbox chart failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Throughout the late ’80s and ’90s, Newton appeared as a solo act in a Las Vegas circuit. He performed a landmark 25,000th solo show in Las Vegas in 1994.
Newton signed a 10-year deal with the Stardust Resort and Casino on the Vegas strip in 1999 that called for him to perform there 40 weeks out of the year, six shows a week, in a showroom named after him. The deal was orchestrated by his business manager Jack Wishna and the “headliner-in-residence” was the first of its kind. In 2005, the casino was demolished and the deal was amicably terminated. He later began a 30-show stint that summer at the Hilton.
In January 2005, Newton started a reality competition show on E! Entertainment network called “The Entertainer.” The winner won a spot in his act plus a headlining act of their own for a year. Newton was featured on the 2007 fall season of “Dancing With the Stars.” He was partnered with two-time champion Cheryl Burke. They were the third pair to be eliminated from the contest. That same year, Newton was the first guest star on The Price is Right under the new host Drew Carey. Newton appeared after a trip to Las Vegas was shown, naturally.
