Elkie Brooks is a genuine national treasure. Blessed with one of the richest and most distinctive voices in showbusiness, she has been entertaining people around the world for the last five decades.

Her professional debut at 15 began a career that has spanned most musical genres and involved collaborations with some of the finest musicians of their generation, making her a household name. Along the way she has recorded some of the most iconic songs in rock history, including Lilac Wine, Sunshine After the Rain, Fool (If You Think It’s Over) and her signature tune Pearl’s A Singer.

But the road to stardom was never an easy journey. Along the way she has experienced hardships that would have daunted most, and dealt with them with the same spirit, grit and determination that colours the extraordinary emotional power of her singing.

In Finding My Voice, Elkie tells her remarkable story in her own unique voice, laying bare the nuts and bolts of stardom and her commitment to the great passion of her life – music.
