Dame Vera Lynn 100 – Happy Birthday!

February this year Dame Vera Lynn was set to break her own record as she celebrates turning 100 by releasing a new album.

The singer, known as the forces’ sweetheart, currently holds the record as the oldest living artist to get a top 20 UK album.

Dame Vera told Radio 4’s Today programme she hoped the new album, Vera Lynn 100 , wouldn’t “lose any of the feeling of the songs”.

She said she doesn’t sing any more because she prefers to “remember” her voice as it was.

Tribute was paid to Dame Vera by shining an image of her on the White Cliffs’ of Dover.
