Biography

Ronnie Carroll was a Northern Irish singer, entertainer and political candidate. He scored his first hit in 1956 with “Walk Hand in Hand”. He is the only singer to have represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest two years in succession.  Thiese successes were followed by two Top 10 hits during 1962 and 1963, but a lack of good material meant that he could not sustain a chart presence. Carroll subsequently worked on cruise ships, and he played a pop musician named ‘Ronnie’ in the 1963 film Blind Corner.In 2005, he released a comeback album, “Back on Song”

Ronnie Carroll died on April 13, 2015, at age 80.
