Petula Clark was born in Epsom, England, but her love of music began at a very early age in her mother’s land of Wales. She was already a star in the UK by the age of 9, singing for the troops stationed in England during World War II. Her song, ‘Downtown’ became a worldwide hit, leading to a string of top ten records, winning her 2 GRAMMY Awards, and taking Clark’s career to international level. She has been living in Geneva, Switzerland for many years, where she met up with Charlie Chaplin who wrote one of her major hits, ‘This Is My Song.’ Clark has performed in her own TV shows in the UK, the United States, and France. She has starred in movies, including Finian’s Rainbow with Fred Astaire, and Goodbye Mr. Chips with Peter O’Toole, theater in London’s West End and on Broadway.
