Biography

The South Florida native, who aspired to perform since childhood, Connie realized her dreams after a friend introduced her to the legendary music producer, Henry Stone. Stone, best known as the co-owner and president of TK Records with a career spaning R&B in the early 1950s through the disco boom of the 1970s to the present day, would go on to become the executive producer of Connie’s 1985 debut single “Funky Little Beat”, catapulting the young singer onto the international music scene.

In 1986, while under the Sonte’s Sunnyview Record label, Connie released her second single “Experience”, which along with “Funky Little Beat”, “Your Eyes”, “I Can’t Stop”, “Fire In My Heart”, “Laughter In The Rain”, “I’m In Love With You”, and “Rock Me”, provided her self-title debut album CONNIE.

The following six years Connie toured the globe, performing with music legends Kool & The Gang, Evelyn Champagne King, Morris Day and fellow Freestyle peers, Expose and Lisa Lisa. In the early 90’s Connie took a step back from the music scene to get married. Before the birth of her daughter in 1996, Connie recorded her second full-length album, NO TEARS, released under the Black Olive Record label.

In 2002 Thump Records released THE BEST OF CONNIE. Containing three versions of Funky Little Beat ( the original and two club-style remix), the BEST OF CD also featured Connie’s original version of Rock Me, Experience, and Your Eyes, plus the newly recorded cover tracks Look Out Weekend, How Can We Be Wrong, and When I Hear Music, which had been made popular a decade earlier by fellow “freestylers”.
