Fred Frank has made music with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Henry Mancini, Andy Williams, Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Dean Martin and Ray Charles. He's sung in stage productions of South Pacific, My Fair Lady, Oklahoma, Bye-Bye Birdie and a host of others. And, he was one of the very first Dapper Dan Barbershop Quartet singers at Disneyland in California --- but these days he spends most of his time producing and distributing a series of "grief recovery" programs for people who have lost a loved one.
Frank has been using music to help people feel good all of his life. His film credits include work on blockbusters such as Out of Africa, Dr. Zhivago, Apocalypse Now, King Kong, Paint Your Wagon and many more. He was a studio singer on some of TV's most popular shows, including Carol Burnett, Hollywood Palace, Smothers Brothers' Comedy Hour, The Mickey Finn Show and many more.
After freelancing for years in Hollywood, and teaching music in southern California schools, Fred Frank turned his attention to the ministry of Christian music; providing solo vocal work for the Evenings of Celebration
& Praise, hosted by Chuck Swindoll's Insight for Living organization, and appearing on over 100 Hour of Power telecasts with Dr. Robert Schuller. He served as a music minister for three California churches, sang in about 100 concerts a year between 1975 and 1991 and recorded more than 10 solo albums.
After the death of his father in 1994, Frank began producing the Growing Through Grief CDs and plans in the future to produce similar programs targeted particularly to teens and young adults. Also planned is a ministry to families of Alzheimer victims.
Fred and his wife Judy live in San Clemente, CA where they enjoy spending as much time as possible with their wonderful grandchildren.
