Biography

There are at least two artists called Lulu:

1) Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie OBE (born 3 November 1948), best known by her stage name Lulu, is a Scottish singer and songwriter most known for the 1960s international hit record To Sir, With Love.

A native of Glasgow, Lulu shot to fame at the age of fifteen with her version of Shout!, delivered in a raucous and extremely mature voice. Her backing group were called The Luvvers, but after several more British hits she left the group to become a solo artist.

In 1966, Lulu toured Poland with the British rock and roll band The Hollies, making her the first British female singer to appear live behind the Iron Curtain.

In 1967 she made her debut as a film actress in To Sir, with Love, a British vehicle for Sidney Poitier. She had a major hit with the film’s title song, which shot to No. 1 in the United States (in the UK, it was released only on the B-side of Let’s Pretend, a much less successful hit). In the meantime, she continued with a thriving pop career in the UK and several television series of her own. On 29 March 1969, she represented the United Kingdom by performing the song Boom Bang-A-Bang at the Eurovision Song Contest, and was joint winner with the representatives of Spain, the Netherlands and France—there had never been a draw before, and the rules were altered to prevent it ever happening again.
