Born 5 May 1950 in Pontardawe, Glamorgan in Wales, Mary Hopkin's career as a singer took off when she appeared on the UK television talent show [i]Opportunity Knocks[/i] in 1968.

She signed with the Beatles' [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Apple+Records]Apple Records[/url] shortly afterwards, her most famous recording being [i]Those Were the Days[/i] (APPLE 2) an English version of a traditional Russian folk song, originally composed by Boris Fomin.

In 1970 she came second in the Eurovision Song Contest with Britain's entry [i]Knock Knock Who's There[/i].

She married [a=Tony Visconti] in 1971. They divorced in 1981.

Since the early 1970s she has been largely retired from the music business.
