Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Thursday, May 5th, 2016 comes from Sister Janet Mead!
On March 9th, 1974, "The Lord's Prayer" entered Billboard's Top 40 and ascended its way to #4, spending eleven weeks in the chart and was certified a Gold Record.
Sister Janet Mead, born in 1938 in Adelaide, Australia. She gained prominence through her weekly rock masses and weekly radio show. She would later call the time that "The Lord's Prayer" climbed the charts as a "horrible time" in her life, she shunned the media attention. She is one of two women who have had Top 10 singles while serving as a nun.
"The Lord's Prayer" was Sister Janet Mead's one and only Top 40 hit and she is relegated to the status of a One-Hit-Wonder.
