Out of the thousands of youngsters who chased the idea of making it big as a musician, Frankie stood out because he already had a background in music, and his good looks and charms added to his appeal.

Considered a child prodigy, he had been winning contests even before he was ten and was invited to appear on a U.S. television show when he was just 11! Blessed with a lovely voice, he also decided to try his hand at singing and found success with hits like ‘Venus’ and ‘Just Ask your Heart’. Highly ambitious, he eventually ventured into acting and here again he was much welcomed due to his charming personality and good looks.
