Sheffield Legends is a Walk of Fame located outside Sheffield Town Hall honouring famous people from or connected to Sheffield. As in the Hollywood version, there are plaques with famous people's names on them and why they are famous.

The purpose of this petition is to request that the City of Sheffield honour internationally respected British vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record label owner Paul Carrack for inclusion in the Sheffield Legends Walk of Fame

Paul Carrack (born 22 April 1951 Sheffield, UK)

Paul wrote and sang ‘How Long’, the much-covered 1974 classic from his days with Ace, and was the voice of ‘Tempted’, from his tenure with Squeeze. Then came such hits with Mike + the Mechanics as the Grammy-Nominated ‘The Living Years’ and ‘Over My Shoulder’, the latter a co-write with Mike Rutherford. Not to mention that another co-write, ‘Love Will Keep Us Alive’, was covered by the Eagles and won a hugely prestigious ASCAP award as Song of the Year. 

Paul tours the UK and Europe annually and also tours with Eric Clapton as part of his band. The BBC dubbed Carrack "The Man with the Golden Voice" in a documentary about him in 2012.

A lifelong supporter of Sheffield Wednesday, Paul is a fine ambassador of the City of Sheffield, mentioning its influences on him during his formative years.
