Anna Marie

Anna Marie (born Anna Marie Tumminia from New Jersey) was a female pop singer from the early 90s. She moved to Los Angeles, California in her early twenties to pursue a recording career and was signed to MCA Records.
In 1990, Anna Marie released her self-titled debut album. It's unknown how or if the album ever charted.
She released two singles from the album: "This Could Take All Night" (which managed to peak at #52 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart) and "Recipe of Love" (which failed to chart at all).

Since then, Anna Marie has recorded jingles in the Philadelphia area, holds a B.A. in Music Education from Rowan University and performed as an oboist with the Bay Atlantic Symphony & the Bel Air Canto Orchestra.

These days, Anna Marie (now Anna Marie Matteo) resides in Springfield with her husband & daughter and is the lead vocalist of her band, Evening Sun.

Anna Marie is the music director at a middle school in Springfield Pennsylvania. She has been there for years & she is amazing at what she does. I had the pleasure of having her as my chorus teacher in middle school. Her dream was to be a singer, but she is amazing as a teacher. She touches students lives with music & she makes it fun. She has been married for quite some time now & she has a beautiful daughter named Gianna.

Great entry. I actually have her album; I think I found the cassette in the 99¢ bin at Sam Goody or something, then years late, upgraded to CD when I found it online. She actually reminds me of Pebbles.
