Sheena Easton Biography

Sheena Shirley Easton (née Orr; born 27 April 1959) is a Scottish-born recording artist and stage and TV/film actress with dual UK/USA nationality. Easton first came into the public eye as the focus of an episode in the first British musical 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's first two singles, "Modern Girl" and "9 to 5", both entered the UK Top Ten, and she was the first UK female artist to appear twice in the same Top Ten since Ruby Murray. In 1981, "9 to 5" topped the US Hot 100, making her the third UK female solo artist to achieve this, following Petula Clark and Lulu, and she became one of the most successful British female performers of the 1980s.

A six-time Grammy nominee in the U.S., Easton is a two-time Grammy Award winner, winning Best New Artist in 1981 and Best Mexican-American Performance in 1985, for her duet with Luis Miguel on the song "Me Gustas Tal Como Eres". She has received 5 U.S. Gold Albums and 1 U.S. Platinum Album. She has recorded 16 studio albums, released 45 singles total worldwide, and had 14 U.S. Top 40 singles, 7 U.S. top tens and one U.S. No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1981 and 1991. She also had 25 top 40 hits in international territories around the world. In Canada, Easton scored 3 Gold and 2 Platinum Albums. She has sold over 20 million albums and singles worldwide.
