The world is mouring the loss of Annette Funicello at the age of 70. Locally, we mourn a legend born and raised right in our own backyards. However, was Annette even a fan of the area? Was Annette a fan of living in Utica New York? No one may know the true answer, but this classic track from 1983 may change your opinion. In the 1983 classic “The Promised Land” Annette talks about life living in Utica.

Come on. She was four years old when she left Utica. How could she be a "fan" of the area?? She knew of nothing else but where she lived all her life. What does it matter really what she thought of Utica? She was a good person and didn't bother anyone so let her just rest in peace.

If she even had an opinion on the city at all, wouldnt that opinion be that of her parents anyway. I mean I'm sure her parents left for a reason and probably told her what they thought of the area. Not to mention who really cares?
