Happy 80th Birthday, Sir Cliff Richard!

Richard is a legend of music. He has been making hits for half a century. His music topped the charts from the 50s until the 80s.

Richard has sold more than 250-million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He’s also the third-top-selling artist in UK Singles Chart history, behind the Beatles and Elvis Presley.

He has also managed to bounce back after being falsely accused of molesting a 13-year-old in 2014. After four years of dealing with the accusations, he came out stronger and has been working on new music. 

To mark his 80th birthday, the legend has announced that he will be releasing a new album. 

"I’ve got some exciting news I’d like to share. To celebrate my 80th birthday, I’ll be releasing a brand new album called, ‘ Music…The Air That I Breathe’."

He said the album will include classics and new songs.

"The album includes two new songs, five new recordings of classic tracks and five duets. I can’t wait for you to hear it," he said.
