Connie Francis (born December 12, 1938) is an American pop singer best known for several international hit songs including "Who`s Sorry Now?", "Where the Boys Are", and "Stupid Cupid". She topped the Billboard charts on three occasions with "Everybody`s Somebody`s Fool", "My Heart Has a Mind Of Its Own" and "Don`t Break the Heart That Loves You" and is listed as the 26th most popular artist of the 1950s and the 8th most popular artist of the 1960s based on her chart success. She is considered the most prolific and popular female rock `n` roll hit-maker of the early rock era.

She married hairdresser Izadore "Izzy" Marion on January 16, 1971. They divorced the following year. In September 1973 she married Joseph Garzilli; together they adopted a son, Joseph Garzilli Jr. (Joey), born in 1974. She has stated that it was because of her rape in 1974 that she divorced Garzilli. After the marriage ended, she married television producer Bob Parkinson, on June 27, 1985. Like the others, this marriage ended in divorce. Nasal surgery to correct previous surgery caused a sensitivity to air conditioning and deprived her of her ability to sing professionally for four years. Her brother was murdered in 1981. Francis was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She has long suffered from continuing mental impairments that developed as a result of her rape, including drug dependencies and suicide attempts. She uses lithium to treat the illness.
