Today, the sad news reached us that Pearl Carr passed away. Carr was the female half of the duo Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson. The two married in 1955 and started singing from then on. In 1959, they were chosen to represent the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Sing little birdie”. They reached a 2nd place.
