Petula Clark To Receive Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Petula Clark had her biggest hit with the chart-topping tune “Downtown” in 1964.  Now the British pop singer will soon have her very own star in Downtown Los Angeles on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Clark is among the celebrities chosen to receive a marker as part of the Walk of Fame’s class of 2018, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday. 

From Petulaclark.com :

Born November 15, with “a voice as sweet as chapel bells,” Petula Clark first broke into the limelight during World War II when as a child she entertained the troops, both on radio and in concert. She is said to have performed in over 200 shows for the forces all over England before the age of nine and by war’s end, Petula Clark–the British “Shirley Temple” who had come to represent childhood itself–was so popular in England she was asked to sing at a national victory celebration at Trafalgar Square. In 1944, Petula made her first movie and has since appeared in over 30 British and American films.
