Born 1940 in Jersey City, New Jersey, American singer and actress Nancy Sinatra is the elder daughter of Frank Sinatra and Nancy (Barbato) Sinatra. She began her career as a singer and actress in November 1957 with an appearance on her father’s ABC-TV variety series, but initially achieved success only in Europe and Japan.
In early 1966, Sinatra had a transatlantic number-one hit with “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'”. She appeared on TV in high boots, and with colorfully dressed go-go dancers, creating a popular and enduring image of the Swinging Sixties.
In 1966 and 1967, Sinatra charted with 13 titles, all of which featured Billy Strange as arranger and conductor. She also had a brief acting career in the mid-1960s, including a co-starring role with Elvis Presley in the movie Speedway, and with Peter Fonda in The Wild Angels. In Marriage on the Rocks, Frank and Nancy Sinatra played a fictional father and daughter.
Sinatra was awarded a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in Palm Springs, California on May 9, 2002. She was also awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on May 11, 2006.
