The British singer, songwriter, and Entertainer, Dame Vera Margaret Lynn who is popular for her hit recording during world war II dies today June 18th, 2020.
Just six weeks ago, before the 75th anniversary of ”VE Day” and during the height of the coronavirus outbreak, Dame Vera said ”simple acts of bravery and sacrifice still define our nation”.
And a week later, she became the oldest artist to get a top 40 album in the UK, beating her own record when her greatest hits album re-entered the charts at number 30.
The singer Dame Vera, who had sold more than a million records by age 22, was also remembered for singing ”The White Cliffs Of Dover, There’ll Always Be An England, I’ll Be Seeing You, Wishing and If Only I Had Wings’.
The Queen of England on the 5th of April echoed her famous WW2 anthem during a speech to Britons who were separated from families and friends during the coronavirus lockdown in April, telling the nation: “We will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again.”
The palace will be sending a condolence message.
