Mary Hopkin

Born 5 May 1950 in Pontardawe, Glamorgan in Wales, Mary Hopkin's career as a singer took off when she appeared on the UK television talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1968.
She signed with the Beatles' Apple Records shortly afterwards, her most famous recording being Those Were the Days (APPLE 2) an English version of a traditional Russian folk song, originally composed by Boris Fomin.
In 1970 she came second in the Eurovision Song Contest with Britain's entry Knock Knock Who's There.
She married Tony Visconti in 1971. They divorced in 1981.
Since the early 1970s she has been largely retired from the music business.
