CONNIE INDUCTED INTO THE N.J. ROCK & POP HALL OF FAME - 2013
"Without further ado, here are the artists who will now be joining them:
• Les Paul. The longtime Mahwah resident, who died in 2009, is best known for helping to invent the electric guitar, but he had many other innovations to his credit, as well as a string of pop hits, and kept delighting nightclub crowds into his 90s.
• Connie Francis. Capable of expressing both innocence and toughness, the Newark native was one of the most popular female vocalists of the ’50s and ’60s, with hits such as “Who’s Sorry Now?” and “Where the Boys Are.”

Fantastic news Fran,I have been waiting for this to happen its so deserving for our Connie.I`m sure Connie is thrilled to be entering the New Jersey Hall of Fame her home state,along with Les Paul.
The following are all recipients of the Presidential Medal Of Freedom : Loretta Lynn, Doris Day, Aretha Franklin, Kate Smith, BB King, Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chita Rivera
Of those listed above...Who has entertained the soldiers in Vietnam? Who has always made it a point to perform "God Bless America" at every concert? Who has been a better "Ambassador of American musical good will" by recording songs in a dozen different languages? Who has worked tirelessly for victims of violent crimes and those suffering with mental health issues?
President Obama, do the right thing....honor Connie Francis
These recipients of the "Medal Of Freedom" can't hold a candle to Connie
and her vast accomplishments and unwavering support of our Soldiers
and mental health. If anyone ever deserved this honor it is definitely
