The Help Yourself Music team are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dame Vera Lynn. Vera Lynn’s family confirmed the singer had passed away on Thursday morning at the age of 103.
Dame Vera Lynn was best known for her performances to troops during WW2, helping to raise the spirit and morale of an entire nation. Her uplifting song ‘You’ll never walk alone’ had recently re-entered the UK Top 40, making her the oldest artist in chart history to achieve such a feat.
Singer Katherine Jenkins has said “Her voice brought comfort to millions in their darkest hours, her songs filled the nation’s hearts with hope, and her emotive performances, whether home or abroad, then or now, helped to get us through.”
Dame Vera Lynn will be forever treasured as the nation’s sweetheart. Our condolences are with the family at this time.
