During the 1950s, he began to play at night clubs and even entered a pub contest. During these early years, he worked under the name of “Gerry Dorsey”. His career was briefly interrupted when he was called to duty for the Britain's Royal Corps of Signals. By 1958, he received a chance to record with Decca records. Although his first single was not a success, his efforts ten years later were commercially successful. In 1964, Engelbert Humperdinck married Patricia Healy. Together, the couple had four children and managed to maintain an active family life. In addition to his work in the music industry, Humperdinck invested in real estate throughout the world.

One of his most notable investments was the Pink Palace. After buying this property in the 1970s, he later sold it in 2002 for $4 million. Unfortunately for Humperdinck, his music career was temporarily sidetracked in 1961 when he developed tuberculosis. Although he regained his health quickly, it was difficult for him to restart his nightclub career. Part of his success was due to his new name and for taking part in the 1966 Knokke song contest. For a brief period of time, he even ran a television series called, “The Engelbert Humperdinck Show”.
