Franne Golde is a multi-talented songwriter/musician/singer/writer whose songs have appeared on more than 100 million records worldwide.
She has written songs on many multi-platinum albums, including Pussycat Dolls’ STICKWITU — which was also a worldwide hit single and was nominated for a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group — Jessica Simpson’s BE, Christina Aguilera’s SO EMOTIONAL and her Grammy Award winning Latin CD MI REFLEJO with EL BESO DEL FINAL, Jody Watley’s DON’T YOU WANT ME, Whitney Houston’s I BELONG TO YOU, The Commodores’ NIGHTSHIFT and Selena’s DREAMING OF YOU.
Franne has received BMI awards for singles with The Pussycat Dolls’ STICKWITU, Randy Travis’s A MAN AIN’T MADE OF STONE, The Kinleys’ SOMEBODY’S OUT THERE WATCHING from the TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL Soundtrack, Selena’s DREAMING OF YOU, Jody Watley’s DON’T YOU WANT ME and NIGHTSHIFT by the Commodores, which also won a Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group and received a Grammy nomination for Song Of The Year and has become a classic still performed and played all over the world.
She also wrote the R&B classic DON’T LOOK ANY FURTHER with Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings, which has since become one of the most frequently sampled tracks by rappers and dance artists internationally.
Golde’s work has been featured on some of the biggest and most important soundtrack hits of the past two decades, including Grammy Award – winning THE BODYGUARD and multi platinum soundtracks TOP GUN, BEVERLY HILLS COP II and SELENA (the biopic) — which featured Franne’s Hit Single DREAMING OF YOU. TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, included the country hit single SOMEBODY’S OUT THERE WATCHING.
In a highly unusual move, Kenny G. recorded Golde’s EVEN IF MY HEART WOULD BREAK with Aaron Neville for the 32 million-selling THE BODYGUARD soundtrack. He then chose to include it on his own 10 million-plus selling release, BREATHLESS. This marked only the third time in chart history that the same song appeared on both the No. 1 and No. 2 albums.
She is currently writing a memoir which weaves together her personal tragedies and triumphs with the story of her success in the music business.
