Michael Holliday 

Norman Alexander Milne, known professionally as Michael Holliday (26 November 1924 – 29 October 1963) was a British singer, who was popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

He had a number of chart hits in the UK, including the number one single “The Story of My Life”.

His career in music began after he won an amateur talent contest in his hometown of Liverpool and again when he was in the USA. After this he was inspired to seek a career in show business. In 1951, he secured two summer seasons’ work as a vocalist with Dick Denny’s band at Butlin’s Holiday Camp, North Wales.

He made his first TV appearance in July 1955. This TV performance was seen by Norrie Paramor, then head of A&R for EMI’s Columbia record label, who signed him as a solo artist.

It is said that Holliday’s style of singing was influenced by Bing Crosby and this earned him the title of “the British Bing Crosby”.
