Petula Clark, CBE is a British singer, actress, and composer. Clark’s professional career began during World War II, as a child entertainer on BBC Radio. In 1954, she charted with “The Little Shoemaker” – the first of her big UK hits – and within two years, began recording in French. Her international successes included “Prends mon coeur”, “Sailor”, “Romeo”, and “Chariot”. Hits in German, Italian, and Spanish followed. In late 1964, Clark’s global success extended to America with a four-year run of career-defining, often upbeat, singles, many written or co-written by Tony Hatch. These songs include her signature song “Downtown” and “I Know a Place”, “My Love”, “A Sign of the Times”, “I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love”, “Who Am I”, “Colour My World”, “This Is My Song”, “Don’t Sleep in the Subway”, “The Other Man’s Grass Is Always Greener”, and “Kiss Me Goodbye”. In America, Clark was dubbed “the First Lady of the British Invasion”. Clark has sold more than 68 million records. She also has enjoyed success in musical films and in stage musicals.
