Connie's first hit, Who's Sorry Now released in October of 1957 didn't officially become a hit until January 1, 1958 when Dick Clark of American Bandstand played the song - over and over - until it had sold almost a million copies. In five seconds flat Connie knew her life would never be the same. She embarked on a non-stop mission to embrace and conquer the world. She maintained a frenetic pace filled with recording albums, appearances on every prestigious TV and variety show, filming movies, and made concert appearances in all major capitals of the world on five continents. Her concerts drew record-breaking audiences. Connie was named The Most Popular Female Vocalist by a write-in vote on American Bandstand for each of the five years of the poll’s existence.
Further hits such as Stupid Cupid (the first female rock ‘n’ roll hit), Lipstick On Your Collar, Frankie, My Happiness and Among My Souvenirs cemented her status as the first princess of rock ‘n’ roll.
Of late, Connie has toured internationally with visits to Malaysia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, France and Canada; and, here in the US in New Jersey, New York, Florida, California, Arizona, Massachusetts, Chicago, and Pennsylvania. She has recently penned her second autobiography that will take a detailed look at the experiences of her life through anecdotes, photos, news, magazine articles and backup-accounts of how it all happened. Connie was recently named the national spokeswoman for Mental Health America's trauma campaign which she calls: STAR -- Stress, Trauma, Awareness, Recovery. http://www.youtube.com/
