Singer-actress Petula Clark's soaring, often soulful vocals helped to grant her one of the longest-running and most successful music careers in the history of British pop music, with over 15 Top 40 singles in the United States alone and scores more in her native England and throughout the world. Though Clark's signature song was the plaintive No. 1 single "Downtown" (1965), she had been a fixture on British radio and film since the early 1940s, before enjoying a modest career as a teen singer in the 1950s. A move to France in 1960 established her as a more versatile talent before she broke worldwide with "Downtown" in the midst of the British Invasion. A string of hit singles, including "I Know a Place" and "Don't Sleep in the Subway" soon followed, as did her successful return to feature films with "Finian's Rainbow" (1968) and "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" (1969). In the 1970s, Clark shifted her attention to television and theater, where she drew rave reviews for performances in "The Sound of Music" and the 1993 Broadway run of "Blood Brothers." But her pop career continued to enchant and entertain new generations of listeners, as evidenced by new versions of "Downtown" in 1988 and 2011 that enjoyed placement in the U.K. Top 10. Clark's ebullient personality and winning way with an upbeat song preserved her status as one of England's most beloved pop performers.
