Lou Christie (b. 1943) is a highly acclaimed and veteran pop/soft rock singer-songwriter who became famous during the 1960s and had the most recognizable falsetto voice of that era next to that of Frankie Valli. His best known songs include the gripping "Lightnin' Strikes" (1965), the chirpy "Two Faces Have I" (1963), the salacious "Rhapsody In The Rain" (1966), and the catchy "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" (1969).
Born Luigi Alfredo Giovanni Sacco in Glenwillard, Pennsylvania, he sang with Lugee & The Lions and other groups before going solo in the early 1960s and later served as lead vocalist of The Cantina Band (of "Summer '81 Medley" fame). Lou Christie has continued to perform and record actively to the present day.
