Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday concert special: Tony Bennett, John Legend and more to celebrate
Frank Sinatra’s getting one hell of a 100th birthday party. Stars including Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, and Alicia Keys will celebrate the late musician’s centennial in a TV special titled Sinatra 100 — An All-Star GRAMMY Concert.
John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, and Usher will also perform at the concert, which will feature arrangements by Don Costa, Gordon Jenkins, Quincy Jones, and Nelson Riddle.
“The name Frank Sinatra is synonymous with excellence that is timeless. As a performer, he possessed undeniable charisma and masterful artistry that resonate throughout generations,” executive vice president of specials, music, and live events at CBS Jack Sussman said in a statement. “To have the opportunity to celebrate the life and art of the Chairman of the Board on his 100th birthday and witness the lasting effects his music has had on artists today with a star-studded GRAMMY concert is a true honor.”
Sinatra, who died in 1998 at 82, won nine Grammy Awards during his lifetime, including three for Album of the Year. The concert honoring his life and achievements will air Dec. 6 (just a few days before his actual birthday, Dec. 12) at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
