What is tough-guy actor Robert Davi of License To Kill, Die Hard and The Goonies up to these days? —John Miller, Chandler, Ariz.
Davi recently released his first album, Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance. Classically trained as a young man at New York's prestigious Juilliard School, he kicks off a tour to support the release, a collection of Frank Sinatra classics, in Las Vegas in February. "Right now I have so much to say through music that it is exploding out of me," he says. "Making the album was not about me singing but about bringing back this music that during my parents' difficult time and the world's difficult time made people fall in love with America and the American dream."
Davi, whose next roles include parts in the upcoming movies Doonby and Spring Break '83, made his acting debut with Frank Sinatra in the 1977 TV movie Contract on Cherry Street.
Also, Davi recently released his version of the Christmas song "Mistletoe and Holly" as part of a campaign to help The Salvation Army provide emergency assistance to families in need this Christmas season.
"This campaign reflects the true giving and receiving spirit of Christmas," says Davi, who will donate 100 percent of his proceeds from the sale of the "Mistletoe and Holly" to The Salvation Army.
