To begin with, Francis was schooled at Newark Arts and Belleville High Schools, but came in contact with music very early. At the age of ten, she appeared in the USA television show “Star Time” (1948), in which young talents had the chance to prove themselves. She first performed playing the accordion, yet soon continued with just singing. In the above mentioned show, she gained more accessible and short stage name.
Concerning her professional career, Francis adopted her stage name at this time, and began recording singles in 1955. However, by and large everything she released flopped, until her breakthrough in 1957, when she released the single “Who’s Sorry No”. Over the next decade the song was followed by many more hits, making Connie Francis one of the most popular singers in the world. She is often recognised by specific weeping in the style of slow songs as “My Happiness” (1958), “I’m Sorry I Made You Cry” (1959) and “Among My Souvenirs” (1959). The well known songs “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool” (1960) and “My Heart Has a Mind of Its Own” (1960) took first place on the Billboard charts.
Francis sang songs in nine languages, most of them were performed in English and Italian, although she sang in French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Yiddish and Hebrew, releasing several albums in Italian, Spanish and Hebrew. Connie Francis also had a hugely successful career in Germany; her first German recording, “Die Liebe ist ein Seltsames Spiel” (Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool) topped the German sales charts in 1960, and she came to have two more number ones in Germany, “Paradiso” (1962) and “Barcarole in der Nacht” (1963).

Connie Francis always liked country music, and she experienced a minor success with the song “The Wedding Cake” (1982), adding her name on the country charts. In 1996, she released the tribute album to Buddy Holly entitled “With Love to Buddy” which is her last studio album, so far.
In addition, Francis’ autobiography “Who’s Sorry Now?” was released in 1984.
