Barry Manilow (born June 17, 1943) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, arranger, producer, conductor, entertainer, and performer.
Peter Griffin, Glenn Quagmire, Cleveland Brown, and Joe Swanson went to a concert of his in "Back to the Woods" after a failed attempt to hide their feelings about his music when they heard about the concert during a news broadcast. They begin singing "Ready to Take a Chance Again", which transitions into Manilow singing the song in concert. He altered his 1974 song "Mandy" into "Quagmire", serenading Glenn with improvised lyrics. Manilow provides his own voice.
