Gaga was among the artists performing at the 'Sinatra 100 Grammy Concert' in Las Vegas
Lady Gaga covered Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’ in a special performance to celebrate what would have been the singer’s 100th birthday.
Gaga was among the performers celebrating Sinartra at the ‘Sinatra 100 Grammy Concert’ at the Encore Theate in Las Vegas. The pre-recorded show aired on US television channel CBS last night (December 6) and also featured covers of Sinatra’s classic songs by artists including Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys, John Legend and Harry Connick Jr.
As reported by Billboard, Lady Gaga imitated Frank Sinatra’s signature performance style and also dressed in a black suit, tie and hat.
Watch the performance below:
Frank Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915. One of the best selling singers of all time, he is known for hits including ‘My Way’, ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘The Best Is Yet To Come.’ Earlier this year Bob Dylan released an album of Frank Sinatra covers titled ‘Shadows In The Night.’
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga is set to release another album of jazz standards with singer Tony Bennett.
The pair released ‘Cheek To Cheek’ in September 2014, a cover album of popular jazz standards including ‘Anything Goes’ and ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance.’ It subsequently topped the US Billboard chart.
Now, Tony Bennett has revealed that the pair are working on a follow up, this time featuring covers of Cole Porter songs.
“Yeah, we’re doing an album,” he told Vulture. “It’s going to be all Cole Porter songs. He was the best writer of all of them in the Great American Songbook. Highly intelligent. We’re going to have a lot of fun doing that.”
Lady Gaga is also reportedly working on her fifth album, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Artpop.’
