Frank Sinatra collapsed face down on stage Sunday while singing ``My Way' during a concert, but recovered quickly and was alert at a hospital.

Susan Reynolds, Sinatra's spokeswoman, said he ``became overheated and passed out for few moments ... Mr. Sinatra's vital signs are stable. He is talking and is alert.'A supervising doctor who would not give his name said Sinatra would be held overnight for observation.

The hospital did not immediately release Sinatra's condition.

Sinatra, 78, collapsed toward the end of his second sold-out show at the city-owned Richmond Mosque auditorium.

Audience member Frank Trexler said Sinatra stopped while singing ``My Way' and asked for a chair.

Another audience member, James Register, said Sinatra's son and bandleader, Frank Jr., rushed off stage to get help. Then Sinatra collapsed face down on the stage, and members of the audience rushed to help, Register said.
