Vera Lynn Back On The Pop Charts

Dame Vera Lynn, a beloved singer during the Second World War, has become the oldest living artist to have a record in the UK top 20 chart at the age of 97, as her album of wartime songs marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The much-loved British singer has reached number 13 in the chart with “Vera Lynn: National Treasure – The Ultimate Collection.” She is the oldest living artist to feature in the UK album chart, following a host of records in her early career. Her latest wartime collection will be particularly poignant for fans on the anniversary of the D-Day landings, featuring some of the most memorable songs of the war. The album includes more than 40 tracks, including “We’ll Meet Again” and “The White Cliffs Of Dover,” and has now beaten the likes of Pharrell, the Arctic Monkeys and baseball pitcher/rapper 50 Cent.
