“I was a little pisherkeh from Brighton Beach and Connie Francis gave me my start,” songwriter Neil Sedaka said.
He told how Connie recorded one of his early songs, “Stupid Cupid,” and turned it into a monster hit of the late ‘50s. “It was my ultimate kvell.”
Sedaka took to the piano and serenaded Connie with a medley of his signature songs, including “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.”
