Estefan’s psychic connection with Connie FrancisAugust 26th, 2008 - 3:01 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 26 (IANS) Singer Gloria Estefan wants to make a film on American pop star Connie Francis because she feels she has a “psychic” connection with her.Estefan felt a connection with the 60s legend when she first considered making a movie about her, but made up her mind definitely after a bizarre coincidence, reports contactmusic.com.
She said: “I had this psychic feeling that I would have something to do with this woman. I always listened to her and her voice made my hair stand on end. I was drawn to her. Then I read her biography - she had been raped, her brother was killed by the Mafia, her father was psychologically abusive and had her committed. I called my office and said if I ever wanted to do a movie, this would be it. And by sheer coincidence Connie phoned my office that week and she wanted to meet me.”
Estefan also revealed that the movie was sealed when the two met and Francis told her, “You are me. I want you to do the story of my life.”
She added: “It’s going to be heavy-duty. I’ve been studying very hard and we hope to get going next year.”
