Lulu Kennedy-Cairns, OBE (born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, 3 November 1948, Lennoxtown, Stirlingshire), best known by her stage name Lulu, is a Scottish singer-songwriter, actress and television personality who has been successful in the entertainment business from the 1960s through to the present day. She is most famous worldwide for her hit "To Sir, with Love" and in the UK for "Shout".


On 29 March 1969, she represented the United Kingdom by performing the song "Boom Bang-a-Bang" at the Eurovision Song Contest. "Boom Bang-a-Bang" was the winner - with three other songs. The entries from Spain, ("Vivo cantando" by Salomé), Netherlands, ("De Troubadour" by Lenny Kuhr) and France, ("Un jour, un enfant" by Frida Boccara) also finished in first place with 18 votes each. There had never been a tie before, and the rules were altered to prevent it ever happening again.

Only weeks before her Eurovision appearance, Lulu married fellow musical star Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees in a ceremony in Gerrard's Cross. Maurice's older brother Barry was opposed to their marriage as he believed them to be too young. Their honeymoon in Mexico had to be postponed because of Lulu's Eurovision commitment. Their careers and his heavy drinking forced them apart, and they divorced, childless, in 1973 but remained on good terms.

In 1977, Lulu married John Frieda, who was previously her hairdresser, and remained with him for twenty years until divorcing him in 1995, having separated in 1991. They had one son, Jordan Frieda, later in 1977.
