Mark Tremonti Sings Frank Sinatra For Charity
Since the 90’s, Mark Tremonti has been creating music for millions of fans to consume on a number of different levels. From the founding of Creed to the formation of Alter Bridge and then his solo career which he is now 5 records deep into, Mark Tremonti is no stranger to blazing new trails. The Grammy award winner has recently decided on a new venture to not only move our feet but now to move our spirits. Tremonti Sings Frank Sinatra is the most unexpected sentence you could ever imagine. Yet, when you hear the first single off this record, you’ll wonder how you never pictured it before. Mark has used Sinatra music for vocal warmups for years now to prepare for shows and this record is a fitting tribute to the practice he has given himself by the late Frank Sinatra. What you may not know is that this record is more special than you could ever fathom and that is because it is a genuine love letter to his newest daughter Stella Tremonti. Stella is a beautiful example of what makes our world so special and so unique just by smiling and allowing her personality to shine the brightest of lights in an otherwise world of gray. The display of care and love that Mark lends to this project is a true testament of a fathers love for his daughter. Being the father of two daughters myself I can tell you that a father will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that their kids know how loved they are. This project and record will stand the test of time as an enduring piece of fatherly and music history.
Mark Tremonti enlisted the help of Sintra's touring band to accompany him recording this and performing it for the benefit in Florida that was recently held. Also, all proceeds are going to support NDSS (National Down Syndrome Society) in honor of his daughter Stella. With that said, we dive into the record. Mark has found himself over the last 15 plus years doing more and more work with his vocals. This is one of those times where it shows. Tremonti croons with the best of them and drops jaws by singing the classic hits of Sinatra in a surprisingly velvety voice. From "Fly Me to The Moon" to "I’ve Got You Under My Skin" all the way down to "Luck Be a Lady." Mark Tremonti and the famous Frank Sinatra Touring Band deliver a rousingly fun and memorable record that any fan of music will appreciate. After all, how many metal musicians do you know that have the ability to jump headfirst into a completely different genre and absolutely nail it? Seriously, we’ll wait.
Mark Tremonti Sings Frank Sinatra is currently being heavily praised by some of today's biggest legends in music and entertainment. "Holy Shit! Totally Blown Away, Totally into It, Let’s Hear More Mark!!!" says Kirk Hammet. "This Is Awesome On So Many Levels. A Crazy Good Performance And A Heartfelt Cause. Kudos Mark!” Says Paul Stanley. “Mark's take on Sinatra is nothing short of uncanny. I could never have expected one of my favorite metal guitarists to do such faithful renditions of Sinatra classics. Not only instrumentally, but vocally! & these recordings are for a cause near & dear to my heart; I was very close to an uncle who had Down Syndrome when I was growing up. I fully appreciate & support Mark's commitment to NDSS.” says Slash. There are more reviews coming in from Mark Tremonti’s peers, as many more artists and industry influences are still listening to this record and hearing the emotion in each song that breathes so much joy and life into a cause so pure at its core.
Take A Chance For Charity is a new charity focused on giving artists, actors, athletes the ability to get out of their comfort zone, having the people with a platform get out of the genre they are known for to raise funds as well as awareness for the charity of their choice. An actor can sing, an athlete can dance, a musician can sing a song out of their musical genre - any artistic interpretation. This gives the artist the ability to do something out of the ordinary, in fact extraordinary, all in the name of charity. Tremonti Sings Sinatra is the first release for the cause, the recipient being NDSS.
The record is available now on all platforms, so get out there and buy it and support an incredible cause.
