Sheena Easton

Sheena Easton first came to fame in Britain in the early 1980s on the documentary TV programme The Big Time, which followed her attempts to gain a recording contract, making her one of the first reality TV stars. It eventually resulted in a major deal with EMI and a string of hit singles, including 9 To 5, For Your Eyes Only, Strut and Sugar Walls. The TV connection meant she had little credibility as a serious artist in the UK but she surprised everybody by winning a huge following in the US, scoring a major hit duetting with Kenny Rogers on We've Got Tonight (1982) and teaming up with Prince for the Number 2 hit U Got The Look (1987). Another big hit followed in 1988 with The Lover In Me and she linked up again with Prince to co-write The Arms Of Orion for the movie Batman. She also moved into acting, appearing in TV series Miami Vice and was the voice of a dog in the film All Dogs Go To Heaven 2, going on to star on Broadway in the musicals Man Of La Mancha and Grease. The hits dried up but Easton continued to write and perform and made a comeback in 2000 with Fabulous, an album of disco covers.
