Connie Francis

Connie Francis

Connie Francis (12/12/38 - Newark - New-Jersey) é uma popular cantora americana, conhecida pelo sucesso das canções "Who's Sorry Now?","Where The Boys Are" e "Everybody's Somebody Fool".
Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero adotou o nome artístico de Connie Francis e é considerada a mais atuante cantora de rock 'n' roll desde o início (final do anos 50 e início dos anos 60).
Sua primeira canção "Freddy" (1955) fez pouco sucesso e como as outras canções lançadas após também não fizeram muito sucesso, ela considerou deixar a carreira de cantora para tentar a carreira de médica, mas a versão cover da canção "Who's Sorry Now?" lançou Connie como cantora mundialmente.
Seria a última canção lançada pelo selo MGM, já que não seria renovado o contrato devido ao pouco sucesso das canções anteriores. A canção foi gravada por sugestão de seu pai, mas com uma batida diferente para que agradasse aos adolescentes. Em janeiro de 1958, Connie cantou a canção no programa "Dick Clark's American Bandstand" e no meio do ano já tinham sido vendidas um milhão de cópias, sendo que em Abril alcançava o primeiro lugar na "UK Singles Chart". Seguiu-se outros grandes sucessos e Connie transformou-se em uma cantora conhecida mundialmente.
Ela se especializou em regravar baladas antigas como "My Happiness", "I'm Sorry I Made You Cry", "Among My Souvenirs", "Together", "Breakin' In a Brand New Broken Heart", e a canção italiana "Mama", mas dando a elas seu toque pessoal. Entretanto também houveram os sucessos como "Stupid Cupid", "Lipstick On Your Collar" e "Vacation". Outros desempenhos notáveis foram "In the Summer of His Years" (um tribute para o Presidente John F. Kennedy) e a música de Bert Kaempfert, "Strangers In The Night" (que ficou mais conhecida na versão de Frank Sinatra). "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" e "My Heart Has a Mind of Its Own" chegaram ao primeiro lugar na Billboard em 1960. Em 1962, outro hit número 1, "Don't Break the Heart That Loves You".
Connie gravou suas músicas em várias línguas diferentes, Inglês, Sueco, Alemão, Francês, Espanhol, Português, Italiano (e no dialeto Napolitano), Hebraico, Iidich, Japonês, Latim e Havaiano.
