Gerry Monroe

Gerry was discovered on the Thames TV show “Opportunity Knocks” with Hughie Green. He is not a name that sticks out from the 1970s pop world, but never the less he had four top forty hits in the charts.

His first 1970 single was a No.4 hit simply called “Sally” the Gracie Field song, followed by his version of Cry which got as high as No 38.

He is probably best known for the next hit called My Prayer, and this was his third UK hit single, the song itself goes back to the 1920s, and had been a hit for The Inkspots and Glenn Miller, to name just a few. The song dates back to 1939 and was written by Jimmy Kennedy.

Gerry was born in 1933 in Gateshead and died in 1989 aged only 54. But luckily his music is still available, like his 1971 hit its A Sin To Tell A Lie a No. 13 hit which dates all the way back to 1936. His last hit in the top forty was Little Drops Of Silver.
