The piece is the love theme from The Godfather. The vocal version is called "Speak Softly Love." The music is by Nino Rota. I can't help with the specific artist doing this live version!

One thing that may help you in your search is to know that those little music clips are called "beds".

Can I hijack and ask if anyone knows the song at 23:47?

*EDIT* This may be useful for future reference.

fishingforthewhale, your song is Look for a Star, by Billy Vaughn^ and his Orchestra. Apparently it's his US orchestration of a UK hit by Garry Mills that same year.
