SHE WAS THE VOICE OF THE 70’S SUPERGROUP THE NEW SEEKERS. EVE GRAHAM EXPERIENCED FAME AROUND THE WORLD. BUT NOW SHE IS HAPPIER AT HOME WITH THE HUSBAND SHE ALMOST LOST.

Almost five decades ago, Scottish singer Eve Graham shot to international stardom as the lead vocalist with the clean-cut supergroup The New Seekers.   The band sold more than 25 million records worldwide, including hit songs such as I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing  and  Beg, Steal Or Borrow, with which they came second in the 1972 Eurovision song Contest.

With her dark beautiful looks she inevitably attracted plenty of male attention.  She declined the advances of Hollywood heart-throb Burt Reynolds and had a fling with football legend George Best.

Ever since she has enjoyed a low-key life in a rock solid relationship with fellow musician singer Kevin Finn.  The happy couple share a  cottage in Perthshire, Scotland with  their three Lhasa Apso dogs.

Eve, who has just released a single Love Won The Fight, talks for the first time  about the horror she experienced witnessing her “soulmate” Kevin, 70. suffer a stroke in 2001, and how heart problems they have  both faced have left them fearful of losing one another.

” Kevin is absolutely everything to me,” she says.  ” If I lost him I’d be completely bereft.”

Eve recently learnt to her amazement that Free To Be…You And Me, a song The New Seekers recorded in 1972 with her distinctive vocals, became a favourite of millions of Americans – including  Barack Obama and Gwyneth Paltrow – when it was the title song of  a US TV special and album which also featured Michael Jackson and Diana Ross.
