Eddy Huntington – famous British singer
Eddy Huntington became famous in the 1980s for Italo-disco hits. One of his most popular songs is “USSR”, which conquered nightclubs and disco parties all over Europe. Eddy also came up with such hits as "May Day", "Up & Down", and "Physical Attraction".
Huntington was born on 29 October 1965 in a small British city, Peterlee. When he was in high school, the talented musician learned how to play the violin. The aspiring artist didn’t enjoy classical music. His favorite musicians were Phil Collins, Eurythmics, and Cliff Richard. Huntington felt inspired by their work and decided to join a local amateur group P.Y.D.W., created by high-school students.
The future celebrity’s parents were hoping he would become a doctor or a priest; however, Huntington had other plans. Eddy started singing when he was 17. Three years later, he moved to London, where he worked as a DJ and studied choreography in the famous dancing studio Pineapple. While attending the studio Eddy got gigs on fashion shows, where he was noticed by the famous producer Roberto Turatti, who worked with Den Harrow at the time. It took a few weeks for the producer to contact Eddy and offer him a chance to perform in a Milano studio. Huntington thanked Turatti for the opportunity. Over the phone, he sang “USSR” and immediately went to Italy.
