Andrea Corr Biography

Andrea Jane Corr, MBE (born 17 May 1974) is an Irish singer-songwriter and actress. Corr debuted in 1990 as the lead singer of the Celtic folk rock and pop rock group the Corrs along with her three siblings Caroline, Sharon, and Jim. As a band they are notable for their hit singles, including their debut "Runaway", and chart-topping "Breathless", and perhaps even more so for their live performances. Aside from singing lead vocals Corr plays the tin whistle and the piano.

With the others, Corr has released five studio albums, two compilation albums, one remix album and two live albums. The Corrs are currently on hiatus because Sharon, Jim and Caroline are raising their children, while Andrea is pursuing a solo career, releasing her debut album, Ten Feet High, in 2007. The album moved away from the folk-rock genre of the Corrs and features a darker edgier dance-pop sound.

Corr is involved in charitable activities. She has played charity concerts to raise money for the Pavarotti & Friends Liberian Children's Village, Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, the victims of the Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland and The Prince's Trust in 2004. She is an ambassador for the Nelson Mandela's "46664" campaign, raising awareness towards AIDS in Africa. During the Edinburgh Live 8 on 2 July 2005 the Corrs performed "When the Stars Go Blue" alongside Bono to promote the Make Poverty History campaign. As a result, she received an honorary MBE for her contribution to music and charity in 2005.
