Newton welcomed his first child, Erin, in July 1976. He shares Erin with his first wife, Elaine Okamura. The couple split in 1985, citing irreconcilable differences in their divorce papers.

The singer was blessed with another beautiful daughter in 2002 when Lauren was born. Newton shares Lauren with his second wife, Kathleen McCrone. The couple married in 1994 and are still together to this day.

FINDING MEANING IN MUSIC

One of the most famous entertainers in Las Vegas, Newton considers performing on stage part and parcel of his life.

“It’s pretty amazing,” he said in 2016. “The most comfortable and calm than I ever am in my life is when I’m on stage, and it’s a wonderful feeling. Music means so much to me because I can affect so many people in a way that you couldn’t do any other way.”
