Lulu may well be the first singer/actress to be known by one name only. She first burst onto the scene in the 1960's at the tender age of 15, with her enduring megahit, "Shout." Since then, she has topped the charts in every decade, working with everyone from Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, and The Beatles, to Elton John, Sting, David Bowie, and Paul McCartney. Lulu has also become an accomplished actress, starting with the cult classic, "To Sir, With Love," with Sidney Poitier, to legendary guest appearances on the BBC comedy, "Absolutely Fabulous."
 
From a young age, Lulu found inspiration in the R & B and Soul records of American artists. She was showcased in the 2003 Figgis/Scorsese docmentary, "Red, White and Blues," alongside other British artists, including Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck.
 
When she turned her hand to writing, she was nominated for both Grammy and Ivor Novella Awards for the worldwide number one hit by Tina Turner, "I Don't Wanna Fight." While mentoring the hopefuls on AmericanIdol, Lulu stopped the show with a powerhouse version of, "To Sir, With Love," arranged by Barry Manilow, to a stunned audience of 70 million.
 
Never one to slow down, Lulu still regularly performs with her band throughout Europe. She enjoyed two successful sold-out tours of her “Here Come The Girls” show which paired her with Anastacia and Chaka Kahn. Now she looks forward to bringing her unique brand of rock n’ soul to the United States.
 
On March 28th, Lulu will be introducing her skincare line, "Time Bomb" on QVC.
