What happened to Nancy Sinatra? Frank Sinatra’s daughter is 82

Now 82, Nancy Sinatra has thrived in the music industry. Not only does she continue to make music, but Nancy is also a mother, a writer, and not afraid to speak her mind.

Hollywood royalty Nancy was born in New Jersey on June 8, 1940, and was one of three children. When she was a child, her father answered the call of Tinseltown and the family moved to Toluca Lake, California.

While her father, the late Frank Sinatra, was a giant in the music industry, Nancy blazed her own trail. She immersed herself in the performing arts, including dance, piano and singing, from an early age.

This willingness to learn led her to a successful career in theater and music. His best-known song is “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'”, which topped the charts in the mid-1960s.

Another of his hit songs was a duet with his father titled “Somethin Stupid”. In the 1970s she began recording songs written by operatic legends such as Bob Dylan.

She also acted in films such as “Get Yourself a College Girl” and “For Those Who Think Young”, both of which were released in 1964.


But, even though she was in films and making music in the 1960s and 1970s, her career began to decline. The singer claimed that she was treated badly by many women who represented the type of music during this period. She claimed:

“I was at an event at the White House when it was the Clinton White House. I met Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks, and they gave me a cold shoulder. It was painful for me… [I] felt like an intruder.”

However, despite this bump in the road, his melodies continued to span decades. Nancy’s popularity rose again on the independent scene in the mid-2000s.

Lana Del Rey has claimed her as one of her most important influences, and country girl Kacey Musgraves chooses to cover her music.

Among many of these famous artists, and as reported by Uncut Magazine, Nancy said she would love to collaborate with Billie Eilish. The “Bad Guy” singer named Frank one of his biggest inspirations.

A significant contribution to his music’s return to the limelight is due to his cover of Cher’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in the film “Kill Bill”, directed by Quentin Tarantino.

From this cover of Cher’s song to her still living influence in the industry, her music and her life will always be connected to the king of swing that is her father.

She continues to honor Ol’ Blue Eyes with books she’s written, such as “Frank Sinatra: An American Legend” and “Frank Sinatra, My Father.”


Nancy has since started her own family, giving birth to two daughters named Amanda Lambert and AJ Lambert. AJ, short for Angela Jennifer, followed in her mother’s footsteps.

At 44, she released her first album entitled “Careful You”. She had been in bands in the past but never found herself on top.


With beautiful children of her own and music to comfort her, Nancy could lay back and enjoy life. But, she instead chooses to use her stardom to draw attention to important issues. Sharing an Instagram post about Ukraine, she wrote:

“Finally, I feel like I’m helping people in Ukraine. I donated to World Central Kitchen, which cooks meals for refugees in Poland. [sic]”

She asked her followers to consider donating to the cause. Many responded positively, with one commenting, “I made this donation here thanks to you, Nancy.”
