Sheila (born Annie Chancel, 16 August 1945, Créteil, France) is a French pop singer, who became successful as a solo artist in the 1960s and 1970s and later fronted a disco act called Sheila and B. Devotion. Sheila has sold over 25,000,000 copies of records in France and was the top selling artist in France in the 1960s and 1970s, well ahead of other French female performers such as Sylvie Vartan, who was always behind in terms of records sales. Her stage name «Sheila» came from the title of her first release, a French cover version of the American hit by Tommy Roe.
