Frankie Valli

X CLOSE

You grew up ridin' the subways, running with people
Up in Harlem, down on Broadway
You're no tramp, but you're no lady
Talkin' that street talk
You're the heart and soul of New York City

Frankie Valli, 'Native New Yorker'

Frankie Valli is an American popular singer, most famous as frontman of The Four Seasons beginning in 1960. He is well known for his unusually powerful falsetto voice and he also maintained a separate solo career during much of the band’s tenure that included several major hits beginning with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and including “Grease.” Valli’s solo recordings were closer to middle-of-the-road traditional pop than his work with the Four Seasons. Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio—the original members of The Four Seasons—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999.
