Known as "The Voice" and "The Chairman of the Board," Frank Sinatra is considered by many the greatest entertainer in the history of American popular culture. He is also one of the most controversial. For more than 60 years, the public saw him entertain millions of fans around the world.
Fewer people knew that he was also a generous philanthropist. But there was also a dark side to his volatile personality. For years he fought with the press, his four wives and the U.S. government.
Frank Sinatra's actual 100th birthday is December 12, but Fox Run residents want to celebrate the occasion early. For more information contact Megan.Smith@Erickson.com
