Sheena Easton Biography

Sheena Easton (born Sheena Shirley Orr; 27 April 1959) is a Scottish international recording artist and stage and TV/film actress. Easton first came into the public eye as the focus of an episode in the first British reality television programme The Big Time: Pop Singer, which recorded her attempts to gain a record contract and her eventual signing with EMI Records.

Easton became the third UK female solo artist ever to top the US Hot 100, following Petula Clark and Lulu. Easton's 1980 debut singles, "Modern Girl" and "9 to 5," entered into the UK top ten, making her the first UK female artist to appear twice in the same top ten.

In the United States, Easton is a two-time Grammy Award winner with three additional Grammy nominations, five U.S. Gold albums, and one U.S. Platinum album. She has recorded 16 studio albums, released 45 singles, and has 15 Top 40 hits on the US Billboard Hot 100 and 25 top 40 hits in international territories around the world. In Canada, Easton scored three gold and two platinum albums. She has sold over 20 millions albums, singles and videos worldwide.

Sheena Easton is the only artist in the history of the US Billboard charts to have top 5 hit on each of the Billboards key charts consecutively: "9 to 5 (Morning Train)" (Pop, Adult Contemporary), "We've Got Tonight" w/Kenny Rogers (Country), "Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair)" (Dance), and "Sugar Walls" (R&B).

Easton rose to fame in the early 1980s with the pop hits "9 to 5" (known as "Morning Train" in the United States), "For Your Eyes Only", "Strut", "Sugar Walls", "U Got the Look" with Prince, and "The Lover in Me". She went on to become successful in the United States and Japan, working with prominent vocalists and producers, such as Prince, Christopher Neil, Kenny Rogers, David Foster, Luis Miguel, L.A. Reid and Babyface, Patrice Rushen, and Nile Rodgers.
