A US postage stamp commemorating the late singer and actor Frank Sinatra will be issued next year, US Postmaster General John Potter said today.

He called the singer “an extraordinary entertainer whose life and work left an indelible impression on American culture”.

“His recordings, concert performances and film work place him among America’s top artists, and his legendary gift for transforming popular song into art is a rare feat that few have been able to replicate,” Mr Potter said.

The stamp image will be unveiled next Wednesday – Sinatra’s birthday – at a ceremony in California and issued in early 2008.

During his career, Sinatra won an Oscar for a movie role and several Grammy awards for his singing.

President Ronald Reagan awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest US civilian honour, in 1985. He died in 1998.
