The singer performed for Cruise at his 2004 birthday party aboard Scientology’s 440-foot cruise ship “Freewinds.” YouTube videos show the singer serenading Cruise with tunes from his mega-hit “Top Gun” including “Take my breath away” and “You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’.” She also engages in a duet with Cruise of “Old time rock and roll” from his film “Risky Business.“
Francis’ professional singing past has sparked a bit of controversy among “X Factor” fans as the show is looking for undiscovered talent. But it appears, according to sites including Perez Hilton, that Francis has performed in film and TV. Additionally she worked on Broadway in “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” and “Street Corner Symphony.”
Here’s the video of her performance at the Tom Cruise birthday.
