Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Carol Decker T’Pau Life Story Interview….
Carol Decker is best known as the singer and front woman for the band, T’Pau, which had international success in the late 1980s.
Although Decker’s music is mainly associated with the group, she also released a solo single in 1995, “One Heart,” in support of the Halifax World Cup Rugby League centenary.
Decker is back in 2015 with a brand new album ‘Pleasure and Pain’. Her new single is ‘Nowhere’.
Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Alex Belfield and Carol Decker from 2015:
Decker was born in Huyton, Lancashire and educated in Wellington, Shropshire, along with other members of the band.
In addition to her musical achievements, Decker has also acted on both stage and screen, including a part in the film, Nine Dead Gay Guys.
TV appearances include Hit Me, Baby, One More Time (in which she reached the final round, ultimately being beaten by Shakin’ Stevens).
Decker also appeared in the British comedy series Trigger Happy TV in which she appeared in a “bull in a china shop” sketch (the joke being that she had previously had a hit with the song, “China in Your Hand”), and in another sketch where she accompanied Dom Joly, as he pretended to be a door-to-door salesman.
Decker took part in the prime time BBC One show Just the Two of Us which began on 2 January 2007.
However, despite singing duets with Beverley Knight, Tony Christie and Natasha Hamilton, she and her singing partner Gregg Wallace were the first to be eliminated from the show, after singing the Jackson Five’s “Blame It on the Boogie”.
Decker appeared in the video for Peter Kay and Matt Lucas’s charity single “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day 2007. She released a single, “Just Dream”, in download-only format in September 2007.
