Sir Cliff Richard celebrates 80th birthday with a new album release

The legend will release an album, called ‘Music…The Air That I Breathe’, to celebrate his birthday. 


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.
