Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra /sɨˈnɑːtrə/
(December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998)[6] was
an American singer and film actor.
Beginning his musical career in the swing
era as the boy singer with Harry James and
Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra found
unprecedented success as a solo artist from
the early to mid-1940s after being signed by
Columbia Records in 1943. Being the idol of
the "bobby soxers", he released his first
album, The Voice of Frank Sinatra in 1946.
His professional career had stalled by the
early 1950s, but it was reborn in 1953 after
he won the Academy Award for Best
Supporting Actor for his performance in
From Here to Eternity. He signed with
Capitol Records in 1953 and released
several critically lauded albums (such as In
the Wee Small Hours, Songs for Swingin'
Lovers!, Come Fly with Me, Only the Lonely
and Nice 'n' Easy). Sinatra left Capitol to
found his own record label, Reprise Records
in 1961 (finding success with albums such
as Ring-a-Ding-Ding!, Sinatra at the Sands
and Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos
Jobim), toured internationally, was a
founding member of the Rat Pack and
fraternized with celebrities and statesmen,
including John F. Kennedy.
