Known for such hit songs as "I Have Loved Me A Man," "Are You Lonesome Tonight?," and "If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?," this New Zealand-born pop star of the late 1960s and early 1970s received the Australian Queen of Pop Award for three consecutive years.
When she was just fourteen years old, she signed with the Zodiac Records label and recorded a popular cover of "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat" (a song originally popularized by the English band Herman's Hermits).
She became famous for her music as well as for her extremely long, reddish-brown hair.
Her marriage to music producer Howard Gable ended in the late 1970s during a period when she was suffering from heroin addiction.
She and fellow pop star John Farnham collaborated on a 1971 album titled Together.
