I was born on July 30, 1941 in Ottawa, Canada. Encouraged to sing by both my parents at an early age, I recorded my first single at the age of 14. In 1957 I went to New York City where I auditioned for American Broadcasting Company ABC, singing a love struck verse I had written to a former babysitter.
The song brought me instant stardom as it rocketed to number one on the charts. The record is one of the best selling 45s in music history. I followed up with four songs that made it into the Top 20 in 1958, making me one of the biggest teen idols of the time. I toured Britain and then Australia.
My talent went beyond singing and I have written mega hits for other very well known and very famous singers.
In the 1960s, I started acting in motion pictures as well as writing theme songs for them. More than ten years passed before I had another number 1 in a duet. In 1990 I became a citizen of the U.S.A. and in 1999 returned to my parentÂ’s birth place in Lebanon for several sell-out performances.
The greatest thing that happened to me was to get married to a former Miss Sweden in 2008 and I am looking forward to my long and healthy journey with my soul mate, my son and my step daughter. WHO AM I?
