Frank Sinatra Drafts Letter Pushing for Performance Royalty Legislation

12 December 1988

Frank Sinatra is one of the biggest stars the music world has ever known. 30 years ago, he helped raise the profile of a gross inequity facing all music creators: the lack of a performance royalty right for sound recordings in the U.S. The world knows Frank Sinatra was committed to his craft, but contemporaries know he cared deeply about the well-being of artists. In his 1988 letter to some of the best-known artists of the time, he urged them to join him in advocating on behalf of all artists to ensure that terrestrial broadcasters paid performers for the music that made terrestrial radio what it was then and is today.
