The Little Italy of Los Angeles Association (LILAA) is immensely proud to announce that, thanks to the support of Councilmember Tim McOsker and Council District # 15, and under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy,  the Los Angeles City Hall Building will be lit up in blue on May 14th, 2023 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the passing of legendary Italian-American singer and motion-picture actor Frank Sinatra.

Known as "Ol' Blue Eyes", Francis Albert Sinatra was the only child of Italian immigrants who settled in New Jersey and is widely considered one of the greatest singers of all time. His most famous hits included “New York, New York,” “My Way”, “Strangers in the Night", "L.A. is My Lady" and many other iconic songs by American composers like Jimmy Van Heusen, Cole Porter and George Gershwin.

Frank Sinatra was also an acclaimed actor and starred in numerous films, among which “Pal Joey” (1957) and “Young at Heart” (1954). 

He won an Academy Award in 1953 for Best Supporting Actor for his stunning role in “From Here to Eternity”.

Sinatra passed away from a heart attack at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at the age of 82, leaving behind an incredible legacy and more than 1400 recordings created during his 50 years career. 

His work inspired- and still inspires-generations.
