The fact that language is widely spoken across the world, the style of rendition has also made English songs extremely popular all across the globe. Although the United States has produced many talented singers, the talent of singers from Britain is worth a mention. Amongst the winners of laurels like the ‘Grammy’ in the past, many have belonged to Britain alone. Singers of English descent have proved their mettle through their rendition of songs belonging to different genres such as Blues, Rock and Jazz. Two of the most respected singers belonging to Britain are John Lennon, member of the famous band ‘The Beatles’ and Eric Clapton. While John Lennon created sensation with his songs such as ‘Working Class Hero’ and ‘Give Peace a chance’, Clapton’s songs like ‘Wonderful Tonight’ are considered to be one of the world’s best pieces of music. Today, the nation has been encouraging many aspiring singers through reality TV shows such as ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. This is a collection of biographies of famous singers hailing from Britain. Read on and learn everything about their timelines, life stories, and interesting trivia & facts related to their lives.
