Francis Albert Sinatra (December 12, 1915 May 14, 1998) was an American singer who is considered by many to have been the finest male vocalist of all time. Renowned for his impeccable phrasing and timing, many critics place him alongside Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley and The Beatles as one of the most important popular music figures of the 20th century.  Sinatra launched a second career as a dramatic film actor, and became admired for a screen persona distinctly tougher than his smooth singing style. Sinatra also had a larger-than-life presence in the public eye, and as "The Chairman of the Board" became an American icon, known for his brash, sometimes swaggering attitude, as embodied by his signature song "My Way"..
