Crayons To Perfume's Girl Of The Week: Ernie Djohan! The Swingin' Singapore Sweetie!


Ernie Djohan is an Indonesian singer who was much beloved in the 60’s, singing both traditional songs and pop hits of the day. Her career started as a child, in 1962 when at the age of 11 she began singing for radio. Later that year she won a vocal contest and scored a record deal with Phillips. Ernie won my heart with her rendition of ‘To Sir With Love’ natch – this is where Crayons To Perfume gets it’s name!




But it’s her version of ‘I’m A Tiger’ that made me an Ernie Djohan fantatic!



This week's Crayons To Perfume features these delightful songs from Ernie, Twistin' Gals, Belgian Gals and so much more!!!
