My Cousin, Helen Shapiro

British songstress Helen Shapiro had an usually deep voice as a young child, earning her a nickname, Foghorn, from her schoolmates. By the time she was 14 in 1961, she had a UK #3 hit with her first single, Don't Treat Me Like A Child.

In 1963, The Beatles were her supporting act during their first national tour of Britain.
