About Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero
Connie Francis is an American singer which has an estimated net worth of $25 million.
Francis was discovered on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts radio program when she graduated from high school.
She signed a contract with MGM Records, and the song, "Freddy", was released as her first single.
In 1957, her song recorded with Marvin Rainwater; "The Majesty of Love, and You, My Darlin' You;" became a chart-topping hit during that time.
Due to hiccups in her singing career, Francis considered a career in medicine, and was about to accept a four-year scholarship offered at New York University. Then, she recorded a cover version of the 1923 song, "Who's Sorry Now?", which debuted on Dick Clark's American Bandstand in 1958. It was reached # 1 on the UK Singles Chart and # 4 in the US.
One of her songs, "Stupid Cupid," went to # 14 on the Billboard chart and was her second # 1 in the UK. Other songs which became a hit are "My Happiness," "Among My Souvenirs," "Lipstick on Your Collar," and "Frankie," among others.
Francis published her first autobiographical book, For Every Young Heart, in 1963.
In 1974, while Francis appeared at the Westbury Music Fair in New York, she was raped at the Jericho Turnpike Howard Johnson's Lodge. Her rapist was never found.
In 1996, her last album release was a tribute to the late Buddy Holly, With Love To Buddy.
