A wonderful WWII 1940s singer / entertainer and Vera Lynn sound-alike.

Jill Daniels, whose similarity to Vera Lynn was well recognised from her early days of singing and earned her the title "The Sweetheart of the Midlands" .


Although at that time Jill was renowned for her excellent renditions of Vera Lynn favourites she did not actually specialise until she was asked to put on a special Show for the VE DAY 50th Anniversary Celebrations, the music being especially created from scratch for all of the Wartime Favourites in
Jill's singing key, (which happens to be the same as Dame Vera's) to recreate as near as possible the original versions.

The VE DAY Shows were a total success and bookings started flowing in for the Wartime Show which is known as "HITS OF THE BLITZ".

The same success was repeated for the MILLENNIUM Celebrations and for The Queen's Jubilee Celebrations and Jill Daniels is now known Nationally and Internationally as Britain's No1 singer
of WWII Songs and Patriotic Anthems.

 The "HITS OF THE BLITZ" Show is now the mainstay of Jills schedule.

THIS SHOW IS A MUST BOOK FOR ALL PATRIOTIC OCCASIONS, 1940s THEME EVENINGS,
IDEAL SHOW WITH OLD TIME FAVOURITES FOR LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS PERFORMANCE.

The audience has the chance to come in fancy dress as a 5 star General or a trooper, Lili Marlene, a showgirl, an old time copper, or Dads Army character, or even Adolf Hitler,Monty, Sir Winston or even a spiv!

Jill has also performed her Show for DAME VERA LYNN along with guest speaker BILL PERTWEE (Air-raid warden from Dads Army).

Jill performs 'Hitz from the Blitz' at many celebrations and revival parties.

Some of her songs include -

This is the Army Mr.Jones
I left my heart at the stagedoor canteen
It's a lovely day tomorrow.

There'll always be an England.
Land of hope and glory.

Oh you beautifull doll
You always hurt the one you love.
