Dusty Springfield was an influential British singer who began her career with The Lana Sisters before joining The Springfields in the early 60's. She achieved great success as a solo artist in the 1960's, releasing numerous hit albums and singles. In addition to her music career, she also headlined several variety series on BBC and ITV networks in the UK during that time.

Her talent and contributions were recognized when she was awarded the Order of the British Empire shortly before her passing. In recognition of her impact on music, she was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later that same year.
