Entertainer. He was the lead vocalist of the musical quartet The Four Aces, best known for their hits "Mister Sandman" (1954), "Three Coins in the Fountain" (1954) and "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing" (1955). Born Al Albertini, he was raised in South Philadelphia. While a teenager, he appeared on the local radio program The Horn and Hardart Children's Hour as a member of the group The BandBusters, where he utilized his musical talents as a piano player and singer. After attending Temple University, Alberts served in the United States Navy where he met Dave Mahoney with whom he formed The Four Aces. Following their signing with Decca Records and the release of their first single "It's No (Sin)" in 1951, they achieved popularity in both the United States and abroad as recording artists and from the touring circuit. During the late 1950s, Alberts left the group to pursue a solo career based in Philadelphia. His recording of the song "On the Way to Cape May" scored a local hit and he later became a Philadelphia television icon as host of the children's talent show "Al Alberts Showcase", which aired until his retirement in 1994. He died from kidney failure.
