Francis Wayne Sinatra, better known as Frank Sinatra Jr, was a popular 20th and 21st century American vocalist, songwriter, actor, music conductor and arranger. He was the son of the legendary American singer-actor Frank Sinatra and his first wife Nancy Barbato Sinatra. Born into a family where music was the mainstay, Sinatra Jr was naturally drawn towards this genre of performing art from his very childhood. He is credited with a commendable body of work in the fields of pop, jazz and swing. He was immensely influenced by his father in terms of voice tone and tenor, style, presentation and even body language. A disturbing episode of his life was played out when he got kidnapped at the age of nineteen and had to be rescued by the FBI. His musical career bore a lot of similarities with that of his father although he could never scale the dizzying heights achieved by Sinatra Sr. He performed with local bands, at night clubs, on television, in movies and held numerous concerts all over the country. In spite of having had a long and fairly popular career, he could never completely come out of his illustrious father’s shadow.
