Frank Sinatra

Francis Albert Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who is regarded as one of the greatest singers of the 20th century.

His albums have sold over 150 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915, in New Jersey to Italian immigrants.

He received 11 Grammy Awards and was also included in Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.

As one of the greatest entertainers in American history, Sinatra clearly tapped into his Everyday Power to reach his full potential.

On May 14, 1998, Sinatra died of a heart attack in L.A.

People often remark that I’m pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you’ve got to have talent and know how to use it. – Frank Sinatra

During his climb to fame, Sinatra decided to try out acting in Hollywood. He made his film debut in 1941 in "Las Vegas Nights" where he sang a few songs. In 1945, Sinatra had his first big break with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the musical "Anchors Aweigh" opposite Gene Kelly. Garnering a few award nominations, Sinatra was cast again with Kelly for the 1949 hit "On The Town," pictured here.

 I believe in you and me. I’m like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life–in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God.” – Frank Sinatra

“A friend to me has no race, no class and belongs to no minority. My friendships were formed out of affection, mutual respect and a feeling of having something strong in common. These are eternal values that cannot be racially classified. This is the way I look at race.” – Francis Sinatra
