Franki Jo Moscato
Franki Moscato is a sophomore attending Wisconsin Connections Academy. She enjoys reading and song-writing, and is well known around the state as a solo-performer at private and public affairs. When she’s not singing the anthem at sporting and patriotic events, she’s playing keyboard at clubs and banquet halls—belting out vocals to legendary numbers dating back to the 1960’s. Moscato’s career started early in grade school when she first polished her artistry and publicly performed heartrending pieces that honored war veterans and their families. At 11 years old she sang the national Anthem for the Green Bay Packers while her community stood proud in support of her state-recognized patriotism.
Being in the public eye made Franki a target of bullying and she left two schools including a private Catholic academy. Along the way, Franki wrote and composed a song to help her cope with her troubles and depression. In 2017, Wisconsin filmmaker Steven Heil produced a music video of her song and cast Franki as the lead role. The song, “Me, Myself, and I” won Best Music Video in both the Hollywood and London Independent Film Awards. Franki has since been cast in several other award-winning films including a three-part educational series on human sex trafficking that is being used in schools across the country.
While Franki continues to battle bullying as a young adult, she promotes education for anti-bullying and suicide awareness in her concert performances. In June of 2017, Franki accepted an invitation from the “American Society for the Positive Care of Children” (SPCC) to have her and her video showcased in the “Bullying” section of their website. Since then, she has become a loyal follower and advocate of their mission to promote the healthy development of children and youth in America.
