Listen to Michael Bolton's voice around 1:15: you can clearly hear that his vocal tone is deeper than Tony Bennett's (who sings just before him). Bolton can be described as a a baritenor, for he can sing tenor very naturally - sometimes without barely any effort - with a deep, husky baritone vocal sound.

He's pretty good yeah. Best ever? I do not agree, but the guy certainly has a pretty hot voice.
His upper 4th octave and his 5th octave singing is awesome.

I heard much better live performances by Bolton though.
It can be really mind blowing.

Great video.
"That's What Love Is All About" is one of my favorites performances.
