Throughout 2015, one of the world’s most beloved entertainment icons of all time, Frank Sinatra, will be celebrated around the world with commemorative centennial events, exhibitions, and new music and film releases.
Ahead of next year’s celebration, the definitive new FRANK SINATRA 100 App, exploring Sinatra’s incredible life and career, has been released worldwide today on the App Store and Google Play. The free to download app is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and Android tablets.
Designed and developed by playDEF on behalf of Frank Sinatra Enterprises and Universal Music Group, FRANK SINATRA 100 is a comprehensive and evolving “appumentary,” inviting fans to step into Frank’s world (on a string), with lush, vibrant imagery showcased in several rare and previously unseen photos, a unique, full-screen Sinatra Slideshow feature, as well as exclusive audio recordings and videos, including a 1962 filmed performance excerpted from the new Sinatra: LONDON box set. The app also delves into Frank’s life and career with an interactive timeline, in-depth features, interviews and personal stories about Frank from many who knew him best, including family members and friends.
Throughout his six-decade career, Frank Sinatra performed on more than 1,400 recordings and was awarded 31 gold, nine platinum, three double platinum and one triple platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America. Sinatra demonstrated a remarkable ability to appeal to every generation and continues to do so; his artistry still influences many of today’s music superstars. He also appeared in more than 60 films and produced eight motion pictures.
Sinatra was awarded Lifetime Achievement Awards from The Recording Academy, The Screen Actors Guild and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), as well as the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.
