Julie Covington (London11 september 1947) is an English singer and actress. She is best known for the original (studio) version of Don't Cry for Me Argentina (the musical version was sung by Elaine Paige).

Covingtons breakthrough came in 1967 as a student when she was invited to sing in a television program of David Frost, after which they got a record deal. After her career shifted to the theater, her performance in the program led Rock Follies to the title role in the musical Evita by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Her song " Don't Cry For Me Argentina was an international hit, and reached # 1 in the Dutch Top 40.

After her second solo album, and guest appearances on albums by other artists, she returned to the theatre.
