Wayback Wednesday: Petula Clark

Birthday greetings to one of the greatest female pop singers of all time. The amazing Petula Clark is, incredibly, 85 years young today!

The British singer, actress, and composer has had a career that spans 7 decades. She was a child star during World War 2 in Britain, and finally came to our attention in the States in 1964 during the British Invasion. To say Petula is still going strong is a major understatement. She just last week released a CD which includes 2 new tracks…and this week is appearing in concert in places like Napa, San Juan Capistrano, and Santa Clarita, California!

And mark your calendars for December 26th, when she’ll be at B.B. Kings in New York. Here’s Petula doing one of her biggest hits on British TV just 5 years back…when she was a mere 80! Happy Birthday Petula Clark, and many, many more.
