October 8, 2015, New York, NY – Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (LCPA) and the New York Philharmonic announce a gala fundraiser for the new David Geffen Hall by presenting a star-studded concert on Thursday, December 3, in the hall, celebrating the music of Frank Sinatra on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Earlier this year music and media executive David Geffen gave a $100 million gift to Lincoln Center to lead a complete renovation of its largest concert hall, which now bears his name.
SINATRA: Voice for a Century will feature Music Director Alan Gilbert conducting the New York Philharmonic, and artists will include the six-time Grammy Award winning singer Christina Aguilera; top-selling instrumentalist in the U.S., Chris Botti; Tony-Award winners Sutton Foster and Bernadette Peters; and multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and composer Sting, all of whom will perform music associated with Sinatra during his iconic career. TV series creator, filmmaker, and actor Seth MacFarlane will host the concert as well as perform, and Broadway and Tony-nominated director Lonny Price will direct. The choreographer is Emmy Award winner Joshua Bergasse. More artists to be announced.
One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Christina Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won six Grammy awards. She has also received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has had the prestigious honor of being named the only artist under the age of 30 included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest singers of all time. In 2011 she entered the world of TV as a coach on NBC’s Emmy Award winning show The Voice. Christina continues to use her voice for good. She has served as global spokesperson for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort since 2009 where her participation has helped raised $115 million for WFP and others, providing 460 million meals and saving millions of lives.
