About Take A Chance For Charity:
Take A Chance For Charity is a new charity focused on giving artists / actors / athletes / anyone with a platform the ability to get out of their comfort zone. The idea is to have people get out of the genre they are known for to raise funds / awareness for the charity of their choice. We want people to have the most fun they ever had while raising money for charity. An actor can sing, an athlete can dance, a musician can perform a song out of their musical genre – any artistic interpretation. This gives participants the ability to do something out of the ordinary – in fact extraordinary – all in the name of charity. Tremonti Sings Sinatra will be the first release for the cause, the recipient being NDSS.

Some quotes about Tremonti Sings Sinatra:
“Mark did a fantastic job on this record, His voice and take on the tunes are amazing!” – Hank Cattaneo (Frank Sinatra – Duets Producer)
“Mark’s take on Sinatra is nothing short of uncanny. I could never have expected one of my fav metal guitarists to do such faithful renditions of Sinatra classics. Not only instrumentally, but vocally! & these recordings are for a cause near & dear to my heart; I was very close to an uncle who had Down Syndrome
when I was growing up. I fully appreciate & support Mark’s commitment to NDSS.” – SLASH
“Holy Shit, I knew Mark was a ripping guitar player, but no way did I ever have a notion that he had golden pipes as well!!! Totally blown away, totally into it, let’s hear more Mark!!!” – Kirk Hammett
“When Mark first played me a track from this project my jaw dropped. Gave me chills! This is a side of Marks voice that people need to hear and I’m certain they will be just as blown away as I was. “ – Chris Daughtry
“Wow! I am absolutely blown away by Mark’s performance on this album!! He delivers the songs authentically, embodying all that is Frank but giving us a glimpse of his own personality as well. I love the arrangements and the fact that some of Frank’s original band members contributed to these tracks. Honestly, I’ve known Mark for a long time and know he is super talented but had no idea he was capable of channeling Old’ Blue Eyes like that! Just absolutely beautifully done and what makes everything even that much more touching is the cause. I bet Mark’s daughter Stella was in his heart during every step of the recording processes. Incredible!” – John Petrucci
“Okay this is so frickin’ good! I had a smile on my face when I heard marks voice come in on ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin.’ The production is fantastic, and I love that he has gifted the album to the NDSS (National Down Syndrome Society) Not surprised that he’s killed it on this one, congrats Mark this is amazing!.”- Tyler Connolly
“Once again Mark Tremonti never ceases to amaze me. These renditions of some of the most beloved Sinatra tunes, are so eloquently done that it is remarkable. And what a beautiful gift to the NDSS. Much love, respect, and success to this incredible project.” – Brent Smith
“I met Mark around 10 years ago. First thing that struck me was his easy going, down to earth, respectful nature. That to me is a priority, and a true measure of one’s make up. Mark’s talent precedes him, I’ve listened to him since the 90’s ‘til present day. It wasn’t until I listened to Mark’s solo albums that I was able to fully realize his vocal abilities. What a great voice!!! A beautiful and unique sound, alongside perfect delivery, dynamics and feel. When asked for my take on Mark’s Sinatra Project, I really didn’t know what to expect. I went into this from the perspective of what I’ve heard. I was asked to listen to 2 tracks. I listened to the whole damn thing!!! I was completely blown away. He sounds just like Frank, with just enough of his own vocal characteristics to infuse just the right amount of himself while honoring Frank’s musicality. Mark did absolute justice to the number 1 iconic, legendary crooner of all time. A stellar job, nailing the inflections, nuances and all the subtleties in Frank’s delivery that made him unparalleled. Bravo Mark. An admirable endeavor and cause for NDSS. All the best Mark, Vicky and lovely Stella.” – James LaBrie
