His “Sweet Caroline” has long been a favorite in the middle of the eighth inning at Boston Red Sox home games. Here’s his performance at the team’s first game at Fenway Park following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, as the city looked to return to normalcy…

A Grammy Award-winning artist, Diamond is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award.
