Cilla Black is an English singer, actress, entertainer and media personality, who has been consistently popular as a light entertainment figure since 1963. She is most famous worldwide for her successful singles Anyone Who Had A Heart, You're My World, and Alfie. After a successful recording career and a brief time as a comedy actress, she became the best paid female presenter in British television history. In May 2010, new research published by BBC Radio 2 revealed that Cilla Black was the biggest selling female chart star of the 1960s in Great Britain with her single Anyone Who Had A Heart.
Priscilla White was born in Liverpool. Determined to become an entertainer, she got a part-time job as a cloakroom attendant at Liverpool's Cavern Club. She was encouraged to start singing by Liverpool promoter, Sam Leach, who gave her her first gig at the Cassanova Club, where she appeared as "Swinging Cilla". She became a guest singer with the Merseybeat bands Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, Kingsize Taylor and the Dominoes and, later, with The Big Three. She was featured in an article in the first edition of the local music newspaper Mersey Beat; the paper's publisher, Bill Harry, mistakenly referred to her as Cilla Black, rather than White, and she decided she liked the name, and took it as a stage name. She was introduced to Brian Epstein by John Lennon, who persuaded him to audition her. Epstein introduced Black to George Martin who signed her to Parlophone Records and produced her debut single, Love of the Loved, written by Lennon and McCartney. Black recorded much material in the following years, including songs written by Phil Spector, Randy Newman, Tim Hardin, and Burt Bacharach. All were produced by George Martin at Abbey Road Studios. Being so closely associated with The Beatles, Black became the first artist to cover many Lennon/McCartney compositions. Her recordings of Yesterday, For No One and Across The Universe were acclaimed critically and became radio favourites. McCartney said Black's 1972 interpretation of The Long And Winding Road represented for him how he always intended the song to be sung. Brian Epstein died of an accidental drug overdose during August 1967. After the death of Epstein, her boyfriend and songwriter Bobby Willis assumed management duties. The Beatles association continued. At a Cannes Film Festival during the 1970s, Black joined George Harrison, Ringo Starr and popular music star Marc Bolan to attend a screening of the John Lennon-Yoko Ono experimental film Erection. Black was the best-selling female recording artist in Britain during the 1960s. To date, she has released 15 studio albums and 37 singles.
