If Frank Sinatra were still alive, he'd be in for an epic 100th birthday party! Ol' Blue Eyes will be honoured at a special concert called Sinatra 100: an All-Star Grammy Concert in advance of what would have been his birthday on Dec. 12.
Hosted by The Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures and CBS, the memorable evening will celebrate the crooner's legacy and hit songs.
The lineup of A-listers set to perform his tunes is long and glamorous. Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and Harry Connick Jr. will join previously announced stars such as Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine and Carrie Underwood for a once-in-a-lifetime show in Las Vegas to be broadcast on Dec. 6.
Celine revealed why it was so important for her to take part in the remarkable event in a news release. "I've been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years. His voice has been such an inspiration for me, and it will always be," she said.
Also singing his praises is The Voice co-host Adam Levine. "Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation, and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank ... That's why I love him."
As a world-famous singer, the Sinatra won dozens of awards, and he’s widely recognized as being one of the bestselling artists of all time; he has sold more than 150 million records. Some of the most famous songs in his catalogue include "Strangers in the Night," "New York, New York," and "The Impossible Dream."
