ZAC BROWN, HARRY CONNICK, JR., CELINE DION AND LADY GAGA ADDED TO PERFORM DURING THE "SINATRA 100 - AN ALL-STAR GRAMMY CONCERT"

Music Stars Salute Nine-Time GRAMMY Award Winner Frank Sinatra With Celebration Presented at Wynn Las Vegas, Sunday, Dec. 6 on CBS

Three-time GRAMMY(R) Award winner Zac Brown, three-time GRAMMY Award winner Harry Connick, Jr., five-time GRAMMY Award winner Celine Dion and six-time GRAMMY Award winner Lady Gaga have been added to the list of performers for the SINATRA 100 - AN ALL-STAR GRAMMY CONCERT. They join the previously announced performers Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood and Usher. The primetime special, presented by CBS, The Recording Academy(R) and AEG Ehrlich Ventures, will honor the remarkable legacy of nine-time GRAMMY Award winner Frank Sinatra by celebrating the late icon's 100th birthday with entertainers performing songs made famous by "the Chairman of the Board." The live concert will tape Wednesday, Dec. 2 at Wynn Las Vegas' Encore Theatre, and will be broadcast Sunday, Dec. 6 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Considered a voice for all generations, Sinatra's signature style and timeless music continue to inspire artists today:

"I've been singing Frank Sinatra songs in my shows for many years," said Celine Dion. "His voice has been such an inspiration for me, and it will always be."

"Frank Sinatra was a mentor, colleague and dear friend of mine, and he was the master of intimate singing," said Tony Bennett.

"My grandfather introduced me to Frank Sinatra," said Alicia Keys. "I love hearing his songs, the phrasing, the innocence - the subtle depth that knocks you out when you concentrate on the lyrics. And those arrangements! It brings me back to the lost art of 'the gentleman.'"

Adam Levine offered, "Nobody could juggle a drink, a conversation and a perfect vocal as casually as Frank. That's why I love him."

Among Sinatra's nine GRAMMY Award wins are three for Album Of The Year for Come Dance With Me (1959), September Of My Years (1965), and A Man And His Music (1966). Additional recognition from The Recording Academy includes a Lifetime Achievement Award, GRAMMY Legend Award(TM), and 13 recordings inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame.

SINATRA 100 - AN ALL-STAR GRAMMY CONCERT continues the tradition of previous Emmy Award(R)-winning TV specials presented by The Recording Academy, AEG Ehrlich Ventures and CBS, including STEVIE WONDER: SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE - AN ALL-STAR GRAMMY SALUTE and THE BEATLES: THE NIGHT THAT CHANGED AMERICA - A GRAMMY SALUTE.

In close partnership with the Sinatra family, SINATRA 100 - AN ALL-STAR GRAMMY CONCERT is produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC. Ken Ehrlich is the executive producer, Lou Horvitz is director, and David Wild and Ehrlich are writers.
