Leo Sayer (Gerard Hugh Sayer) was born on 21 May 1948 in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, is an English performing artist, now based in Australia, whose singing career has spanned four decades.
In 1976, Sayer recorded three Beatles songs, "I Am the Walrus," "Let It Be" and "The Long and Winding Road" for the ill advised and ill-fated documentary, All This and World War II.
In 1990, he contributed to the last recording studio collaboration between Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, the album Freudiana, performing "I Am A Mirror".
In 2000, "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" was featured in the hit film, Charlie's Angels, and was on the accompanying soundtrack album.
Sayer's debut UK hit, "The Show Must Go On," was covered by Three Dog Night for the U.S. market and reached Number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1974. Phil Collins covered Sayer's song "I Can't Stop Loving You" for his 2002 album, Testify. It reached number one on the U.S. adult contemporary chart.
In 2005, Sayer moved to Sydney, Australia, where he remains based to this day. On 12 February 2006, made a surprise return to number one in the UK Singles Chart, with Meck's remix of "Thunder In My Heart." He has also appeared in the Australian comedy, Stupid, Stupid Man.
