Please post any inquiries you have for Lulu.


Lulu has achieved a significant accomplishment that very few musicians have: she has been performing for 60 years. To celebrate, she will be going on tour and answering your questions. Born as Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, Lulu quickly climbed the ladder of success in her singing career. She turned professional at the age of 12, signed a record deal at 14, and had a Top 10 hit at 15 with her energetic rendition of the Isley Brothers’ “Shout.” In her teenage years, she also earned her first No 1 song in the US with the theme song for the 1967 film “To Sir, With Love,” in which she also had a role. She also made history as the first British female singer to perform in countries behind the iron curtain, including a tour of Poland with the Hollies.

She expanded her diverse range of skills to include hosting television shows. She had the opportunity to meet famous musician Jimi Hendrix while working in the studio. In 1969, she emerged victorious in the Eurovision song contest with her song Boom Bang-a-Bang. However, she later confessed to John Peel that she did not think highly of the song. That same year, she tied the knot with Maurice Gibb from the popular band, Bee Gees. They remained married until 1973. She then had a brief romantic involvement with David Bowie and even covered his song The Man Who Sold the World, which reached No 3 on the UK charts.

She has also performed a theme song for a James Bond film, recorded at the renowned Muscle Shoals studio, made an appearance in a Monty Python movie, collaborated with Bobby Womack, composed for Tina Turner, achieved a UK No 1 hit with Take That, and overall has been a strong presence in British pop culture.

So there’s tons to ask her about as she embarks on her Champagne for Lulu tour – also celebrating her 75th birthday as well as those 60 years in showbiz – which kicks off in Glasgow on 9 April and then heads to Manchester, Southampton, Birmingham and London.

Please share your questions in the comments section below by 11am GMT on Thursday, February 1st. We will post her responses on February 9th.
