During the height of her career, Power’s beauty was the subject of wide, public appreciation. So much so that Sir Terry Wogan of BBC confessed to allocating points to Italy at Eurovision Song Contest 1985 before hearing their entry song due to Power’s appearance.
To date, Al Bano and Romina Power have sold over 165 million albums worldwide with Felicita remaining an iconic song in the history of music. Her most famous performances include singing at Maracanã Stadium for Pope John Paul 2 in 1997, two performances at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976 and 1985 as well as numerous appearances at San Remo Festival.
In 1983, she declined the role of Deborah and starring along Robert De Niro in Once Upon a Time in America, which was a privately dedicated offer by the director Sergio Leone.
Power currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Despite her international success, Power never achieved as much notability in her home country, the United States.
