Who was/is Connie Francis ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more


Connie Francis

Geboren am 12. 12. 1938 als Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero in Newark, US-Bundesstaat New Jersey.

Connie Francis die weibliche Pop-Ikone

Als Elfjährige wurde Connie Francies während einer Talentshow entdeckt, sechs Jahre später erhielt sie einen Vertrag von MGM. Ihre erste Single ('Freddy') erschien 1955, die, wie einige andere mehr, zunächst unbeachtet blieb.

Erst 1958 funkte es, 'Who's Sorry Now' (Baujahr 1923) wurde ihr erster Chart-Treffer in den USA, dem bis 1969 noch 54 weitere folgen sollten. In England brachte die erfolgreichste Sängerin der 50er und 60er Jahre 24 Titel in die Hitlisten (1958 - 66), von ihren 35 deutschsprachigen Original-Singles platzierten sich 23 zwischen 1960 und 1970.

Keine andere Interpretin weltweit nutzte so geschickt die Zeit- spanne nach der Hoch-Zeit des Rock'n'Roll und dem Beginn der Beat-Ära. Als die goldenen Jahre von Connie Francis vorüber waren, setzte sie sich für UNICEF ein, ging als singende Truppenbetreuerin nach Vietnam.

Seit 1960 war sie auch in diversen US-Filmen zu sehen und zu hören, etwa “Where The Boys Are' ('Dazu gehören zwei', 1960), “Follow The Boys' ('Mein Schiff fährt zu dir', 1962), “Looking For Love' ('Ich wär' so gern verliebt', 1963) und 'When Boy Meets Girl' ('Boy meiner Träume', 1965).

1974 wurde sie nach einem Auftritt im Westbury Theatre vor den Toren New Yorks überfallen und vergewaltigt- ein Verbrechen, von dem sie sich lange Jahre psychisch nicht erholte. Anfang der 80er absolvierte sie wieder Gastspiele, doch gegen Ende des Jahrzehnts forderte ihre instabile Gesundheit erneut Tribut. Nach Sprachproblemen während einer Show im Londoner Palladium gab es ähnliche Anzeichen während eines TV-Gesprächs im amerikanischen Fernsehen.

1991 brach Connie Francis während eines Konzerts in New Jersey zusammen. 1992 erlebten mehrere Francis-Titel in Deutschland eine Renaissance: Die Medleys “Jive Connie' und '(10, Connie, Go' schossen in den Hitlisten ganz nach oben.

1993 nahm sie in München mit Peter Kraus für Sonys Herzklang-Label die Duette 'Que Sera' und “So nah' auf- in England wurde ein Song aus einer TV-Serie zum Überraschungs-Hit: 'Lipstick On Your Collar' aus dem Jahr 1959.
