Frank Sinatra has been hailed as one of the world's most renowned artists and was regarded as the greatest American singer for over three decades of the 20th century.

Having never received formal music training, Sinatra had to work twice as hard to establish himself as a musician. His impeccable sense of style, accompanied by his stage and camera presence, earned him a lot of prestige and respect as an entertainer.

Frank Sinatra was not just a musician but a performer, actor, and entrepreneur. Sinatra won the Academy Award for his role in 'From Here to Eternity' and was also a recipient of the Golden Globe in 1971, his fourth Golden Globe award. He gained popularity as an American singer with his compositions 'My Way', ‘New York, New York’, and 'The Way You Look Tonight'. He is known for possessing one of the most unique baritone voices of all time. Sinatra was known for making television appearances through the '50s and '60s; his most notable work was 'The Frank Sinatra Show' which aired on CBS in 1950. He made another attempt with a show of the same name under ABC, not attempting any television series after.
