Vera Lynn albums and short biography

Dame Vera Lynn, DBE (born Vera Margaret Welch on 20 March 1917), widely known as The Forces' Sweetheart is an English singer, songwriter and actress whose musical recordings and performances were enormously popular during the Second World War. During the war she toured Egypt, India and Burma, giving outdoor concerts for the troops. The songs most associated with her are We'll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square and There'll Always Be an England. She remained popular after the war, appearing on radio and television in the UK and the United States and recording such hits as Auf Wiederseh'n Sweetheart and her UK Number one single My Son, My Son. In 2009 she became the oldest living artist to make it to No. 1 on the British album chart, at the age of 92. She has devoted much time and energy to charity work connected with ex-servicemen, disabled children and breast cancer. She is still held in great affection by veterans of the Second World War and in 2000 was named the Briton who best exemplified the spirit of the twentieth century (source:
