Olivia Newton-John, 1971. 

Her debut single that year, “If Not For You” (following George Harrison’s version rather than Bob Dylan’s original) reached #1 on the US Adult Contemporary Chart, and her follow-up “Banks of the Ohio” was a Top 10 hit in the UK and Australia. She was also named Best British Female Vocalist by Record Mirror that year (and 1972, too!).
