Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge and Creed is releasing an album of Frank Sinatra covers for charity

Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge and Creed is apparently a huge Frank Sinatra fan, so much so that he has decided to cover a handful of Sinatra’s classic songs for a new record. Tremonti has announced a new album, “Tremonti Sings Sinatra,” in which the guitarist and vocalist covers a handful of famous Sinatra tracks.

The record will arrive on May 27, and proceeds raised from the album will go to the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS). The organization works to advocate for and support individuals with Down syndrome and their families.

The NDSS charity is of extra significance to Tremonti, as his daughter Stella was born with Down Syndrome.

“For years, I’ve loved singing along to Frank’s songs,” Mark said in a press release. “One night, I found an old video of him performing ‘The Song Is You’ from 1944. It made me want to dive into his vocal approach. I was all in and I wanted to do something with it.”

He added, “When we found out about our daughter Stella’s Down syndrome diagnosis, the stars aligned. My obsession with Sinatra had its reason. Frank Sinatra raised more than a billion dollars for charity and that is a fact I wish the public the public knew more about. Beneath his cool and calm persona, he had a big heart. Doing this charity in his name was another way the stars had aligned. I decided to do this record to raise funds for families and individuals with Down syndrome. This project is the start of a new purpose that I will have for the rest of my life.”
