During the Sinatra 100 An All Star GRAMMY Concert artists from all genres celebrated the life and legacy of the world renowned jazz singer. Sinatra has been called one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, and that became more clear than ever during this concert in his honor.
Underwood and Brown were joined by television producer, actor, and singer, Seth McFarlane. They each sang one of the icon’s classic hits. Underwood kicked off the the medley with “Come Fly With Me”. The song was written for Sinatra in 1957, and became one of his signature songs. Underwood certainly did the jazz standard justice, hitting every high note and looking like the epitome of elegance in her stunning blue dress.
McFarlane sang the popular 1940’s show tune, “Bewitched”. The song was originally written for the Broadway play, Pal Joey. Sinatra later covered the hit, bringing his own magic to the pop song. McFarlane has professed his appreciation for Sinatra has his musical idol, and much of his own music embodies the “rat pack” sound.
Brown was the last of the trio to perform, “Stars Fell On Alabama”. As a 1934 jazz classic, the song has been performed by hundreds of artists, including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and of course Sinatra. Brown showed his range and versatility during the performance, and was joined on stage by Underwood and McFarlane to close out the medley of hits.
All three artists wowed the audience, and showed that music is not just a genre. Sinatra had an influence throughout the music industry, and his memory is here to stay. Watch the incredible performances below.
