Downtown is a hand-clapping, toe-tapping tribute to the woman who at the height of Beatlemania wrestled the Fab Four for the number one position on the music charts – and came out on top. Melissa Langton, music theatre favourite and star of the internationally renowned girl-group The Fabulous Singlettes, brings us the incredible songs and the fascinating story of one of Britain’s most cherished entertainers – Petula Clark.In the swinging 60's Petula repeatedly topped the charts in every corner of the globe with hits like Colour My World, I Know a Place, My Love, Happy Heart, Don’t Sleep in the Subway and Downtown. She is the most commercially successful female singer in British chart history.Downtown celebrates Petula’s pop hits but also features highlights from her acclaimed performances in stage musicals such as The Sound of Music and Sunset Boulevard and her starring roles in movies such as Goodbye Mr Chips and Finian's Rainbow.Petula Clark made her singing debut on radio at age nine and her most recent recording was in 2012 at the age of 82. That is more than 70 years in show business and she is still going strong. A career worth celebrating.
