Your help needed in finding his family
I have had an important request which could prove advantageous to the surviving family of the late South Shields born singer Gerry Monroe/Harry Morris.
Monroe, the former Plessey’s worker, shot to fame after appearing on Hughie Green’s Opportunity Knocks, and had a small string of hits with his familiar falsetto voice in 1970-71.
Older readers may remember Monroe’s hits “Sally”, “Cry”, “My prayer”, “It’s a sin to tell a lie”, and “Little drops of silver”.
Wikipedia has Gerry as being deceased.
If you know any of Gerry Monroe’s relatives, if they are still in South Shields or nearby, then please get in touch, my details are on the contact page. They could be in for a pleasant surprise.
Here’s a YouTube video clip of Gerry’s cover of My Prayer.
