the Mafia.All three had #1 singles on the US Billboard Hot 100,
two had family members who also reached #1 on the US Billboard
Hot 100.The fourth New Jersey singer who also had a Billboard
#1 single was from southern New Jersey just outside of Philadelphia.
Here are the eighteen people celebrating birthdays on December 12.
We'll start with the singers.

 1) Born on Sunday,December 12,1915 in Hoboken,New Jersey,USA and died in Los Angeles  on May 14,1998 was one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music.He was to the 1940s,like what Elvis was to the 1950s.He was to the 1940s like what the Beatles were to the 1960s. He was to the 1940s like what Justin Bieber is to the young girls of today.Many girls would throw their panties at this singer when he performed on stage.
   His daughter had a #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1966.In 1967 he and his
daughter did a duet that spent four (4) weeks at #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
   He has earned the nicknames of "Ol' Blue Eyes" and "Chairmen Of The Board".

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels and
not the words of one who kneels
