    In what was already a spectacular billing including Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, and Usher, today The Recording Academy announced Zac Brown, Harry Connick, Jr., Celine Dion, and Lady Gaga will join in to celebrate the late Frank Sinatra's 100 birthday in the primetime special, Sinatra 100 — An All-Star GRAMMY Concert. The program will air Sunday, December 6, on CBS.

    The evening's entertainers, celebrated in their own right, cite Sinatra as a major influence on their work. "Frank Sinatra was a mentor, colleague and dear friend of mine and he was the master of intimate singing," said Tony Bennett.

    "I've been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years," said Celine Dion. "His voice has been such an inspiration for me and it will always be."

    "My grandfather introduced me to Frank Sinatra," Alicia Keys said. "I love hearing his songs, the phrasing, the innocence — the subtle depth that knocks you out when you concentrate on the lyrics. And those arrangements! It brings me back to the lost art of 'the gentleman.'"

    "Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank. That's why I love him," said Adam Levine.

    Sinatra won nine Grammy awards, among them, three for Album Of The Year for 1959's Come Dance with Me!, 1965's September of My Years, and 1966's A Man and His Music. The legendary crooner was also awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award, a Grammy Legend Award, and 13 recordings inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
