On May 9, 1964 Louis Armstrong went to No.1 on the US singles chart with his tune Hello Dolly. Being No. 1 on the charts made him the oldest artist to achieve this feat (he was 62).

That record was not beat until 2011, when 85-year-old Tony Bennett broke this record when his duets album topped the US album chart.
