The Beverley Sisters are record holders, being the longest surviving vocal group of all time without a change in the line up. They achieved this record and entered the 'Guinness Book Of World Records' in the year 2002.
They are the second of three generations of performers. Their parents were the music hall act Coram and Mills, who were comedian George Coram & ballad singer Victoria Mills. Joy's daughters Vicky and Babette, and Teddie's daughter Sasha formed the 1980s singing trio The Foxes.
They first aired on the BBC's Allied Expeditionary Forces Program, and were soon heard on Variety Bandbox and other radio shows.
In 1951, they signed a recording contract with Columbia Records that helped them become the highest paid female act in the UK. They were the first British female group to break into the US top 10. Their hit recordings included "Sisters", "Bye Bye Love", and "Always and Forever".
During WWII, the sisters were evacuated to the Midlands. There they were signed to become "Bonnie Babies" in an ad campaign for Ovaltine.
