Sandie Shaw was one of the most successful British singers during the 1960s, often described as the barefoot pop princess due to her penchant for not wearing shoes, in 1967 she was the first British act to win the Eurovision Song Contest.
Born and raised in Dagenham, she worked at the Ford Factory before coming second in a local talent contest where the prize was the chance to perform at a charity concert in London. At said concert she was spotted by singer Adam Faith who introduced her to his manager Eve Taylor.
Sandie was a regular on popular British TV programmes of the time such as Top of the Pops, Ready Steady Go! and Thank Your Lucky Stars. She had more than 20 top 40 hits and more number ones than any female artist in the 1960s.
