The 1970s heartthrob has enjoyed success as a singer, songwriter, producer, director, author and actor in film, TV and theatre, filling stadiums and packing out theatres.

He has written, recorded and produced albums and singles that have sold millions of copies worldwide, and enjoyed success with 23 Top 30 singles in Britain alone.

According to The Guinness Book of British Hit Singles, he was voted the number one British male vocalist in 1974.

As well as penning his own material, the versatile performer shot to fame as a West End star when he secured the role of Jesus in the London production of musical Godspell.

Other theatre credits include Che inthe original production of Evita, Reverend Shaw in Footloose, George in Aspects of Love and Levi Lee in All the Fun of the Fair.

David also starred in Silver Dream Racer, That’ll Be The Day and Stardust films, and this July the blue-eyed performer will celebrate his 70th birthday.
