Liz Mitchell Blue Plaque
Wrottesley Road, Harlesden, London. NW10 5UY.
This was the childhood home of Liz Mitchell, lead singer of Boney M, a hugely successful euro-carribean, disco-reggae group created by German record producer Frank Farian in 1975. Formed in Berlin, the four original members were Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett from Jamaica, Maizie Williams from Montserrat and Bobby Farrell, a performing-artist from Aruba.
Mitchell attended Chamberlayne Road School, now called Kensal Rise Primary School. Boney M had numerous hits in the late 1970s including ‘Rivers of Babylon’, ‘Daddy Cool’, ‘Rasputin’ and ‘Mary’s Boy Child’.
