DIANA - August 30 1957 Written by Paul Anka 9 weeks at #1 - 25 weeks on chart
Paul Anka (born July 30, 1941, in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian singer and songwriter.
Anka began singing as a child and, encouraged by his parents, at age 14 he recorded his first single, "I Confess." In 1957 he went to New York City where he auditioned for ABC, singing a lovestruck verse he had written to a former babysitter, Diana Ayoub. The song, "Diana," brought Anka instant stardom as it rocketed to number one on the charts. "Diana" is one of the best selling 45s in music history. He followed up with four songs that made it into the Top 20 in 1958, making him one of the biggest teen idols of the time
