Dame Vera Lynn

Vera Lynn - We'll Meet Again

Dame Vera Lynn, 97, the UK chart-topper who serenaded allied troops and their loved ones during WWII, has announced the release of a new album to commemorate her 90th year in show business.
Dame Vera announced the release of the record, Vera Lynn: National Treasure - The Ultimate Collection, today, March 20, her 97th birthday. The collection will include recently discovered tracks which are yet to be released, as well as some of her most memorable and morale-boosting songs as the Forces' Sweetheart.

The Ultimate Collection will be released on June 2 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Second World War D-Day landings, which occurs four days later.

Dame Vera said: ''I think it's wonderful that my songs are still enjoyed, especially if it encourages people to commemorate what happened 70 years ago.
Vera Lynn's songs put tears in my mother's eyes.
