Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra!!!!!!!

( this is a very short biography that doesn't talk about everything he did. It doesn't really talk about his songs because that is going to be a post of its own, it is not very good lol)

He then was recongnized by Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra. With him, he sang his first number 1 ong on Billboard, "I'll Never Smile Again".
In that same he married Nancy Barbato. They had three kids, Nancy, Tina and Frank jr.

( the same year he played in "Take me out to the Ball game".) That kicked off his career as a solo artist.
His voice suffered and he experienced hemorrhaging of his vocal cords on stage at the Copacabana on April 26, 1950. ( he was soon better)
