Francis Albert “Frank” Sinatra was an American singer, actor and producer born in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1915. He was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century and his music has been considered timeless by many. He is one of the best selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide. Sinatra found success as a solo artist after being signed by Columbia Records in 1943, becoming the idol of the “bobby soxers”. He released his first album, The Voice of Frank Sinatra, in 1946. In the early 1950s Sinatra turned to Las Vegas, where he became one of its best known performers as part of the Rat Pack. His career was reborn in 1953 with the success of From Here to Eternity and his subsequent Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He signed with Capitol Records and released several critically lauded albums, including In the Wee Small Hours (1955), Songs for Swingin’ Lovers! (1956), Come Fly with Me (1958), Only the Lonely (1958) and Nice ‘n’ Easy (1960). Sinatra left Capitol in 1960 to start his own record label Reprise Records and released a string of successful albums. In 1965 he recorded the retrospective September of My Years, starred in the Emmy winning television special Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music and scored hits with “Strangers in the Night” and “My Way”.
