Career

She was the lead singer of the pop vocal trio known as the Teddy Bears, which also included Phil Spector.The Teddy Bears’ only major hit, “To Know Him Is To Love Him”, which Spector wrote specifically to showcase Connors’ singing voice, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1958, also becoming the first woman to chart.After their initial hit, the trio disbanded because of the failure of their follow-up singles, and the fact that Spector preferred working behind the scenes to performing.

Some years later she legally changed her name to Carol Connors. She co-wrote (with Ayn Robbins and Bill Conti) “Gonna Fly Now”, the theme song from the film Rocky, which earned her an Academy Award nomination.Carol Connors sang the theme to the film Orca, called “We Are One”.

Other songwriting credits include the Rip Chords’ 1964 hit “Hey Little Cobra”, plus the 1980 Billy Preston/Syreeta Wright duet “With You I’m Born Again”; the 1994 title track “For All Mankind” on the debut album of Italian singer Guendalina Cariaggi, which was used as the theme song for a documentary produced by Pier Quinto and Lara Cariaggi, on the legends of soccer and the FIFA World Cup;for “Madonna in the Mirror”, the finale song on A&E’s 15 Films About Madonna;and three songs – “Condi, Condi”, “I Think of You so Fondly”, and “Chill, Condi, Chill” – for Courting Condi (2008).
