Daniels' first recognition as a singer came from winning a local talent contest, at the age of 14, in a Stepney cinema. Local recognition lead to a first singing job with a semi-professional band led by a Canning Town grocer until another talent competition organized by the Daily Sketch and sponsored by bandleader Ted Heath. A long residency (1954-56) with bandleader Denny Boyce followed at The Orchid Room in Purley. At Boyce's suggestion she changed her stage name and through their regular Radio Luxembourg broadcasts she gained a wider audience and the opportunity to record for the Oriole label.
