Happy 62nd Birthday Kelly Marie, born in Paisley October 16th 1957.

Born as Jacqueline McKinnon she won the Opportunity Knocks talent competition at the age of 15 singing the Lloyd Webber/Rice song I Don’t Know How to Love Him for 4 winning weeks in a row, but it was in France that she first enjoyed any success on vinyl when ‘Who’s The Lady With My Man?’ was awarded a gold disc, hitting the top five in 1976.


It wasn’t until 1980 that‘Feels Like I’m In Love’ topped the UK singles chart , what might surprise some is that the song, written by former Mungo Jerry leader Ray Dorset, was meant to be recorded by Elvis Presley !! The King of Rock n Roll died before he could record it, although a friend I talked to about this claims that he did record it, I have yet to find him singing it though.


Minor hits followed with ‘Loving Just For Fun’, ‘Hot Love’ and ‘Love Trial’, before Kelly’s chart career came to an end.


Kelly Marie is actually still recording and is also a mother of six, she still has a very avid fan-base who are passionate about her and she remains a popular and successful attraction in discos around the world. Let’s hope that she is keeps belting out some some great tunes.
