Section 101, a New York based company that delivers a dynamic web-based solution providing simple and effective tools for music and entertainment brands, has launched a new website for Franchesca Robi at https://franchescarobi.com. Franchesca is the daughter of baritone great, and leader of The Platters, Paul Robi. Franchesca’s new album, Remembering The Platters - Songs of My Father, covers many of The Platters greatest hits such as “Only You,” “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” “The Great Pretender” and more. She sings the songs with an unequaled passion and sincere emotion that pays tremendous tribute to her dad. From a young age, Franchesca was influenced by her father’s performances and had a true affinity for the music. When she got older, she began her own career, but her love of her father’s was never far behind. Shortly thereafter, Paul was diagnosed with cancer and he asked his daughter to join the group in his place. She performed with The Platters the world over, from Australia to Europe to Asia and North America. Her father, sadly, passed away in 1989 but Franchesca wanted to continue to keep his legendary music alive. Remembering The Platters - Songs of My Father, released in the summer of 2012, features Franchesca performing her own rendition many of The Platters hits, and brings new life to the sound of the original favorites. Says CEO Liz Leahy, “We are so excited to be working with Franchesca Robi. Her music is not only gorgeous to listen to, but the history behind it makes it all the more heartfelt. She breathes new life in to these classic tracks and we’re thrilled to be part of taking these songs online to a new audience.” ABOUT SECTION 101: Section 101 delivers a dynamic web-based platform that presents simple and effective solutions for music and entertainment brands to manage and maximize their online presence.
