CBS, The Recording Academy and AEG Ehrlich Ventures are celebrating the late Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday with an entertainment special.

The event, called “Sinatra 100 – An All-Star Grammy Concert,” will include performances from Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood and Usher. The special will also include tribute performances of Sinatra classics and rare archival footage narrated by the man himself.

“The name Frank Sinatra is synonymous with excellence that is timeless. As a performer, he possessed undeniable charisma and masterful artistry that resonate throughout generations,” said Jack Sussman, EVP of Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. “To have the opportunity to celebrate the life and art of The Chairman of the Board on his 100th birthday, and witness the lasting effects his music has had on artists today with a star-studded Grammy concert, is a true honor.”

“Frank Sinatra is a voice for all generations. His showmanship and artistry have remained unmatched since he began performing professionally in the 1930s to his last recording 21 years ago,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “Today, he continues to gain popularity for his classic sound and signature style. It’s only fitting that we join the global celebration in honor of his 100th birthday.”

The special will tape Wednesday, Dec. 2 at Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theatre and air Sunday, Dec. 6 from 9-11 p.m. on CBS.
