The Frank Sinatra and John Hershult Humanitarian Award

There have been many articles written about Frank Sinatra who was perhaps one of the most important and influential singers of the 20th century.

Sometimes, he is insulted in the press because of his short fuse and anger. At other times though people have shown respect for the man who fought for equal rights for African Americans. He played a key role in the elimination of racial discrimination in hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada and casinos. He also received members of Rat Pack and Reprise artists to boycott hotels and casinos that refused access to black sponsors and performers.

He began his official career in 1943 when Frank signed with Colombia for recordings. He signed with Capitol Records in 1953 and in 1961 he formed his own record label called Reprise Records based on who you think recorded nearly 1,000 songs, including songs like "All of Me", "The Birth of the Blues" "," Come Fly with Me "," Fools Rush In "," The Lady is Tramp "," My Way "and" Strangers at Night. "

Famous films "In the City", "Men and Dolls" and "From Here Forever" won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor "Pal Joy", "The Prismatic Candidate", "Elvin Oceans" and "Oceans Robin and the Seven Covers".

One of the Frank prizes I am proud to have seen is the Jean-Herschult Humanitarian Award. The award is awarded periodically to someone in the filmmaking industry whose humanitarian efforts have paid tribute to the film industry as a whole.

The award is named after Mr. Jean Hirschult who has always worked to improve everyone through his acting and film career. He has served as President of the Film Relief Fund for several years and as President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Certain parts of Frank's acceptance letter have been suspended with me throughout these years. This resonated with me because he showed that Frank had not forgotten where he came from nor his humble beginnings in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Tell your audience and TV that most of the time if you're famous, you often get a prize for doing some good work for others. But he said there are many ordinary people in the community who do not get any recognition of the many good deeds they do day after day. “He won an Oscar in arms,” he said, so it goes back to “everything John does” who did well but didn't get the recognition he deserved. On our behalf tell them, thank you.
