Who is this celebrity?

This celebrity was attending a wedding that we attended today. She is a good friend of the bride and groom. She was a singer that began her career in the 50s. Her real name is Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, she was married four times and has lived quite a tragic life. One of her many memorable songs was "Who's crying now?" It was also the title to her autobiography. Can you guess?

This is her with Marc and I today.

This was her back in the day....

BTW, We had a blast at the wedding. We sat with a group of really good friends. We had so much fun and danced ourselves silly...literally!

It was a very good day!

Knew her right away (by the song). Connie Francis. My Mom LOVED her and she and my mom shared the same name - first and middle.

That must have been fun!

Yes, I thought it was Connie Francis. I tried to cheat and look on the internet to no avail. Too cool!!! Then the other commentors said who it was when I clicked in. YES!!! How lucky you were!!! I hope you gave her a BIG hug as her life has not been the best ... but whose has?!?!?

Connie Francis!! Recognized her immediately. Yes, after her attack, she didn't sing for years. And it was because of her story that hotels changed their security procedures forever. No longer are they allowed to give out room numbers of guests.
