Frank Sinatra says he's thrilled to receive the "Ella" Lifetime Achievement Award, and better yet, to get it from the source: Ella Fitzgerald.

Sinatra said at Monday night's ceremony that he has "loved and adored" the 72-year-old Fitzgerald for decades. The bash also was billed as an early celebration of Sinatra's 75th birthday, which is Dec. 12.

The ceremony was a benefit for the Society of Singers, a charity that gives financial help to singers, past and present.

Among those attending were comedian Don Rickles, actor Sylvester Stallone and singers Harry Connick Jr., Peggy Lee and Pia Zadora.
