Nancy Sinatra- Daddy's Little Girl.
While some children of celebrities try to distance themselves from their famous parents while trying to pursue a similar career, Sinatra embraced her connections, made the most of them, and was very grateful for her father's advice.
The ballad "Somethin' Stupid" — a duet with father — hit #1 in the U.S. in April 1967and spent nine weeks at the top of Billboard's easy listening chart. It earned a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year and remains the only father-daughter duet to hit No.1 in the U.S. It became Sinatra's third million selling disc.
Nancy Sinatra, starred in three 'beach party' films: For Those Who Think Young (1964); Get Yourself A College Girl (1964); and The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (1966). She performed in Roger Corman's The Wild Angels(1966) with Peter Fonda and Bruce Dern. She also performed with Elvis Presley in Speedway(1966). She was the only singer to have a solo song on an Elvis album or soundtrack while he was still alive.
First American to perform the opening credits song to a James Bond film (You Only Live Twice, 1967).
