Frank Sinatra 100: Stars Celebrate Late Singer’s Milestone Birthday
Saturday marks what would have been Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, and celebrities are paying tribute to the late music legend.
Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915. Over his decades-long career, the crooner amassed countless hits, like “My Way” and “New York, New York.” He died in 1998 at age 82.
In honor of his milestone birthday, he was recently feted by the Recording Academy with the star-studded “Frank Sinatra 100: An All-Star Grammy Concert,” which aired last Sunday. Now that it’s actually the big day, a number of stars have taken to Twitter to share their appreciation for the icon. Seth MacFarlane, who was one of the Grammy performers, tweeted, “100 years ago today, Frank Sinatra was born. Happy birthday to the guy who taught the rest.”
Larry King, who considered Sinatra a friend, posted on his page, “December 12th should be a national holiday – it’s Frank Sinatra’s birthday! Take it from me, there will never be another Ol’ Blue Eyes!” Alec Baldwin simply said, “Happy Birthday, Mr Chairman…” Patricia Heaton offered, “From Ol’ Brown Eyes to Ol’ Blue Eyes: Happy Birthday #FrankSinatra!”
“A very swingin happy 100th birthday to Ol’ Blue Eyes today,” wrote Darren Criss. “Thanks for all the music, moments, & memories. They will never die. #Sinatra100.” Celine Dion remarked, “Frank, we love you All The Way! Happy 100th!” And John Stamos shared a throwback photo of himself with the singer, commenting, “Happy Birthday Francis Albert from me and @PaulaAbdul #Sinatra100 #iconic.”
