RIP Christy


The Italian dubbing website “Il Mondo dei Doppiatori” is reporting that Christy (Maria Cristina Brancucci) died January 11, 2022 in Rome. She was 81. She was the daughter of the composer Italo Brancucci [1904-1958], sister of the singer, lyricist and voice actor Ernesto Brancucci [1947-2021]. As a singer she was active in the 1960s and 70s using the pseudonyms Christy and Cristy. She began her career as a singer at the beginning of the 1960s , singing on various soundtracks made for the Italian RCA by composers such as Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov, often collaborating with Alessandroni's "Modern Cantori". In 1968 she dubbed Barbra Streisand in the sung parts of the film Funny Girl.  She continued her dubbing career usually in animated features. Christy sang the title songs in two Euro-westerns: “The Big Gundown” (1966) and “Tepepa” (aka Nlood and Guns) 1969.
