Gene Pitney is inducted into Michael Ball's Singers Hall of Fame
Nominator: Rita McLaren
Rita has her choice of Gene Pitney inducted into the Singers Hall of Fame on Sunday Night with Michael Ball.
Why: "I remember going to see him perform live in Walthamstow when I was a young teenager with my now husband of 45 years, when you were a mere babe in arms, it was either in 1963 or '64. I also remember being overcome with the overwhelming urge to run down to the stage… such strange behaviour don't you think, can you imagine?!"
What a thing to do Rita! Thanks for getting in touch to nominate Gene.
