Connie Stevens was born on August 8th, 1938 in Brooklyn, New York with the birth name Concetta Rosalie Anna Ingolia.  Her parents who both worked as jazz musicians soon filed for divorce and she was raised by her grandparents being sent to study at a Catholic boarding school.

As her career progressed she was seen in films such as, "Grease 2" (1982), "Back to the Beach" (1987), "Love is All There is" (1996) and "Double Duty" (2009).  Along with her singing, stage and film work she also appeared on a variety of television series throughout her career in the industry such as, "Wendy and Me" starring with George Burns, "Murder, She Wrote", "The Love Boat", "Baywatch", "Burke's Law", "Maverick", "Ellen", "Clueless", "Three Sisters", "Hotel" and "Fantasy Island".
