Renato Pagliari was a restaurant worker from the West Midlands in the UK who enjoyed entertaining people with his strong tenor voice. He entered the TV talent show New Faces in 1975 and caught the attention of songwriter Johnny Edward, who wrote Save Your Love. The Renee half of the duo was Renee (Hilary Lester) professional singer and actress. She did not appear in the official music video due to other work commitments.
Renee and Renato topped the charts with this one-hit-wonder for four weeks over the Christmas and New Year period 1982.
