Vic Damone (Vito Rocco Farinola)

He had to drop out of school to help support his family and work as an usher
and elevator operator after his father was injured. Inspired by his favorite
singer, Frank Sinatra, Damone began taking voice lessons. He entered the
talent search on Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts and won in April 1947. This
led to his becoming a regular on Godfrey’s show. He met Milton Berle at the
studio who got him work at two night clubs. By mid-1947, Damone had signed
a contract with Mercury Records.
