Johnny Farnham

John Peter Farnham (born 1 July 1949) is an English-born Australian pop rock singer. Farnham was a teen pop idol from 1967-79, billed then as Johnny Farnham, but has since forged a career as an adult contemporary singer. His career has mostly been as a solo artist although he replaced Glenn Shorrock as lead singer of Little River Band from 1982-85. In September 1986 his solo single, “You’re the Voice” peaked at No. 1 on the Australian singles charts. The associated album, Whispering Jack, held the No. 1 position for a total of 25 weeks and is the 2nd highest-selling album in Australian history. Farnham has become one of his country’s best-known and most popular performers, and is the only Australian artist to have a number one record in five consecutive decades (echoing that of Cliff Richard in the UK).  (More from Wikipedia)
David White, John Madara and Ray Gilmore of the Spokesmen also co-wrote a song called “Sadie (the Cleaning Lady)” that became a #1 hit in Australia in 1967 for Johnny Farnham.
