I believe if we keep spreading the word about the Kennedy Honors and the fact that anyone can make recommendations, more of Connie's fans could get involved in having her nominated for this award. She certainly deserves it. Lynne
We have been discussing to honor Connie with the Kennedy Honors. But it has occurred to me that not only has she not been inducted to the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame, but she has not been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I went to the website and read the list of not only actors but also many musical stars that are on the walk of fame. Neil Sedaka, Bobby Vinton, Paul Anka, Ricky Nelson many from the late 50s earlly 60s but not Connie Francis. Why has there been this over sight? Lynne
Connie has been ignored far to much she deserves to be in the R & R Hall and also the Hollywood Walk of Fame.I hope the fans will go to the Kennedy Center Honors Website and recommend her for this honor.
I'm glad some of you have written to nominate Connie for The Kennedy Center Honors, I have watched
this program for at least 4 yrs in a row, other living people to add to the list that were honored that I recall were Paul Simon, Julius LaRosa, Andy Williams and not sure, but I think Neil Sedaka was honored too? Connie Francis to me has been forgotten, going by the list of people that they have already
honored @ the Kennedy Center, Connie Francis definitely should have been at the top of their list. To nominate Connie Francis the address to write a letter is The Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts 2700 F St NW, Washington D.C. 20566 Someone mentioned that you can send an email on the Kennedy Center website ( I'll have to look for that) connik64
Oh Thanks Pat, I did not see this website before, when I googled CBS other Kennedy programs came up.
to send a nomination by email is a lot faster and simpler for all Connie's Fans
I really like watching this tribute Kennedy Center honors every year, it usually is shown
around December each year. hopefully if enough of us write to nominate Connie..we will see Connie on TV sitting in the balcony with her rainbow ribbon medallion draped around her neck for next years honors 2014
Does anyone know why Connie's new Facebook page cannot be accessed? I am getting a message.................:"Sorry this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed"
I played the song "Connie" by Tommy Sands on You Tube, what a cool version of Connie.
then there were some photos at the end of the video..and yep Connie Francis pic was posted
there backed up by The Diamonds.. possibly they could have been on tour together along with Tommy Sands... You r right, Tommy was married to Nancy Sinatra, then divorced her and father-in-law Frank
not happy about the break-up.
