For generations, artists have been inspired by nine-time GRAMMY Award-winner Frank Sinatra, who's incredible talent and free-spirited lifestyle is still widely adored. So, it's only fitting that musicians across a wide scope of genres would come together to pay tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes, who would've turned 100 this year.
On Sunday, Dec. 6 at 9/8c, CBS will air Sinatra 100: An All-Star GRAMMY Concert, a special two-hour music event celebrating Sinatra's legacy in Las Vegas, one of the crooner's most beloved stomping grounds.
The live concert will be taped on Wed., Dec. 2 at the Wynn Las Vegas' Encore Theater and will feature performances from GRAMMY Award-winning all-stars like Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, and Usher.
Each of the featured artists will be singing renditions of Sinatra's famous hits, many of which were originally orchestrated by renowned arrangers Don Costa, Gordon Jenkins, Quincy Jones, and Nelson Riddle.
Sinatra's family worked in close partnership with Sinatra 100: An All-Star GRAMMY Concert, to ensure the evening would be the only broadcasted special of its kind honoring the Chairman of the Board.
"Frank Sinatra is a voice for all generations," Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, said. "His showmanship and artistry have remained unmatched since he began performing professionally in the 1930s to his last recording, 21 years ago. Today, he continues to gain popularity for his classic sound and signature style. It's only fitting that we join the global celebration in honor of his 100th birthday."
As if the evening could get any better, the performances will be enhanced with rare archival footage narrated by Sinatra himself.
So, get out your nicest cocktail attire—or coziest pajama set—and mark your calendars for an unforgettable evening of music and memories on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 9/8c on CBS.
