Before the birth of her daughter in 1996, Connie recorded her second full-length album, NO TEARS, released under the Black Olive Record label. In 2002 Thump Records released THE BEST OF CONNIE. Containing three versions of Funky Little Beat ( the original and two club-style remix), the BEST OF CD also featured Connie's original version of Rock Me, Experience, and Your Eyes, plus the newly recorded cover tracks Look Out Weekend, How Can We Be Wrong, and When I Hear Music, which had been made popular a decade earlier by fellow "freestylers". By the mid 1990's the self-proclaimed "FOREVER FUNKY" one itched to get back into the studio and with a new production team, Black House Productions; Connie released LET'S PARTY in 2006.
Revealing a fierce Latin twist and new "funky beat style" LET’s PARTY is an English/Spanish crossover with a Reggaeton, Cumbia, Merengue, and R&B beat. That year also saw the release of the MP3 download compilation THE BEST OF ( FUNKY LITTLE BEAT) featuring digitally remastered original songs on Amazon.com. Funky Little Beat, regarded as one of the defining songs of the freestyle era, still holds its own in today inspiring Canadian singer, Kim Esty to cover the catchy tune, while Connie’s other popular hit - ROCK ME - is reaching a new younger audience as the soundtrack to the NIKE commercial filmed at the Berrics. Connie currently resides in South Florida with her husband, daughter, and family dog and continues to perform in both public and private concerts, throughout the U.S. and abroad.
