Cilla Black was born Priscilla White on 27th May 1943 and used to be a hat-check girl at the now legendary Cavern in Liverpool.
She became close friends with the Beatles. Cilla was introduced to Brian Epstein by John Lennon who persuaded him to audition her. Brian Epstein signed her up as his token female act to complete his 'stable of stars'. Epstein probably did not realize that she was the second-biggest star to emerge from the Liverpool scene.
Cilla's first record was this Lennon/McCartney composition called LOVE OF THE LOVED which reached number 35 in late 1963 in UK.
In 1964 his second single, ANYONE WHO HAD A HEART, was the first British number one by a female vocalist since Helen Shapiro at the end of 1961,
and became the biggest selling single by a female artist in the history of England.
Her next single and her second #1 hit, YOU'RE MY WORLD, was an English version of the Italian popular song Il Mio Mondo. It is one of the best-remembered songs of her career and also gave Cilla her first major chart success in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Frequently using songs composed by close friend Paul McCartney, including her 1968 hit STEP INSIDE LOVE, Cilla's chart success continued until the end of the Sixties. After Epstein's death Black's pop career began to decline. Her last Top Ten hit was "Something Tells Me" in 1971.Black continued recording and became a popular TV personality in the seventies.
