Sinatra gets star-studded tribute for centennial birthday

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- 100 is turning out to be a very good year for Frank Sinatra.

What would have been the musical icon's centennial birthday on Dec. 12 has been celebrated with an HBO documentary about his life, a Grammy museum exhibit, even dinner specials at an old Las Vegas steakhouse.

Wednesday night his birthday gets the star treatment with a live Grammy-produced concert at the Wynn resort-casino in Las Vegas.

Among the stars paying tribute to Frank Sinatra are Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood and Usher.

The two-hour concert airs Sunday from 9 to 11 p.m. EST/PST on CBS.

Daughter Tina Sinatra says the family had been developing plans for a tribute concert in the back of their minds since her father's death in 1998.
