Description

Known around the world as ‘The Forces’ Sweetheart’, Dame Vera Lynn was undoubtedly the voice of a generation. Providing Britain with an uplifting soundtrack during the turbulent times of the Second World War, Dame Vera quickly gained the adoration of the nation throughout the 1940s with her legendary renditions of patriotic songs, from ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ to ‘We’ll Meet Again’.

In the wake of the war, the iconic vocalist became a firm fixture of Britain’s entertainment scene and her widespread popularity allowed her to shine
internationally, particularly on the other side of the Atlantic. In 1952, Dame Vera Lynn became the first British artist to achieve a number one single in the United States with ‘Auf Wiederseh’n Sweetheart’, emphatically proving that her popularity was not restricted to the British Isles. In the years that followed, Dame Vera remained a regular of the public spotlight, notably featuring prominently on a number of variety shows, including the Royal Variety Performance on four occasions between 1960 and 1990.

Dame Vera was a national treasure and her charity work played a big part throughout her career too, particularly in her later years when her performances became rare. She sadly passed away in June 2020 at the age of 103, however, her inimitable voice lives on to this day through the timeless songs she sang.
