С ранних лет любила музыку, становилась лауреатом музыкальных конкурсов.

Посещала монастырскую школу святого Иосифа в городе Рединг. Закончила «St Joseph's Convent School».

[править] Творческий путь

Карьеру певицы начала в конце 40-х (в 1949 г. ее заметил продюсер EMI Уолтер Ридли, когда она пела в отеле Cumberland, он подписал её на HMV Group) — 1-й половине 50-х.

В 1952 г. вышел её дебютный сингл.

Написала несколько собственных песен.

Вышло 5 её сольных альбомов.

[править] Личная жизнь

Утверждается, что у неё был тайный роман с Джоном Ленноном. Они познакомились в 1964 г., а до этого, как сам Джон Леннон говорил, что будучи подростком, подражал ей во время учебы в Ливерпульском колледже искусств.

Заодно намекают на её близкую дружбу с Полом Маккартни.
