At 92, Dame Vera Lynn has Britain’s No. 1 record
By JENNIFER QUINN, Associated Press Writer LONDON – At age 92, Dame Vera Lynn has beaten the Arctic Monkeys and even the Beatles to capture the No. 1 record in Britain.
The singer who 70 years ago recorded an evocative reminder of home for British soldiers fighting far away on Monday became the oldest living artist to have a No. 1 record in Britain when her album “We’ll Meet Again — The Very Best of Vera Lynn” took the top spot.
