She was snapped up by Norrie Paramor of EMI's Columbia Record label at 13 years old as they thought she was a bloke :-)
This is a very recent UK London TV Programme with Helen live. It is the full show so it will take a long time to watch. Some of the Jesus bits are heavy going sometimes(You can fast forward!) but Helen looks well for her age and there is a lot of old footage of her as a teenager. She still has that unique voice for a woman!
Hope You Enjoy some of it!
To all you younger Noddlers, Helen Shapiro (Fog Horn) was a 13 year old schoolgirl with the most amazing voice in the very early sixties. As school kids, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, Helen Shapiro, Billy Fury, Marty Wild etc., were the British Popular Music Stars to us before the Beatles etc.came on the scene.
