Gigliola Cinquetti was born on this day in Verona, Veneto, Italy in 1947. Her musical career started early:
She first received attention at age 16, when she triumphed at the annual San Remo Song Contest in early 1964; just weeks later, she swept to victory at Eurovision, to set herself up for a stunningly successful career.
My introduction to Gigliola was listening to an LP that she recorded with Los Panchos, the great trio of Spanish music.
Have a nice day Gigliola!
