In 1969, Lulu was given the opportunity to sing for the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest. Johnny Harris was the musical director of the selection show in Britain in which she presented the songs, from which the audience could choose a winner. Subsequently, he travelled to the contest in Madrid with Lulu to conduct the Spanish orchestra during her rendition of ‘Boom-bang-a-bang’. This song became one of four winners that year, tying for first place with the entries from the Netherlands, Spain, and France.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Johnny Harris will be published on this website
