Connie was encouraged by her father to enter singing contests and play the accordion as early as the age of 4. After signing a record deal in the late 50s, her first 9 solo singles were commercial flops.

She considered a career in medicine after MGM Records didn’t renew her contract. In her final session with MGM, she recorded a cover version of a 1923 song, ‘Who’s Sorry Now?’ Dick Clark debuted it on ‘American Bandstand,’ and it quickly sold over a million copies launching her into fame.
