[WATCH] 'When you hear Sinatra's music you hear honesty' - Richard Shelton

UK actor and singer Richard Shelton describes himself an interpreter, not an impersonator.

Having starred as legendary crooner Frank Sinatra in 'Rat Pack Confidential', Shelton has gone on to recreate moments in Sinatra’s musical career.

He joined Azania for this week's #702Unplugged to perform music from his upcoming show 'Sinatra and Me'.

The show kicks off in Durban at the Rockwood Theatre on 12 March with four shows, before heading to Gauteng's Joburg Theatre from 21 March.

He was somebody who was capable for example on one hand, of great kindness and generosity and on the spin of a dice he could turn and this terrible temper would come through, but I think all of those characteristics made this incredible character that influenced his music.

When you hear his music, you are not only hearing this glorious voice. You are hearing honesty.
