Bobby CurtolaInducted in 2019
With his boy-next-door looks and smooth vocal style, Bobby Curtola had all the perfect qualities to win over fans at the dawn of the Sixties. Beginning with “Hand in Hand with You” at the tender age of 16, the fresh-faced, cardigan-wearing singer scored a string of pop hits and became Canada’s first teen idol. But Curtola didn’t stop there. A charismatic entertainer, he took his talent coast to coast and then to Las Vegas, Nevada, rubbing shoulders with Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, and ultimately continued performing into his 70s.
