Biography
1980s pop diva Sheena Easton was born Sheena Shirley Orr in Bellshill, Scotland on April 27, 1959. Inspired to pursue a singing career after seeing Barbra Streisand in #The Way We Were, she later attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama while moonlighting with the group Something Else. Exposure on the BBC television production #The Big Time: Pop Singer not only resulted in a record deal with EMI but also pushed Easton's 1980 debut singles, Modern Girl and 9 to 5, into the U.K. Top Ten, and she became the first female artist to score two simultaneous Top Ten hits. Her self-titled debut LP followed in 1981, while 9 to 5 was reissued in America under the title Morning Train to avoid confusion with Dolly Parton's recent hit of the same name; regardless, the single topped the U.S. pop charts, with Modern Girl cracking the Top 20 a few months later. After earning a Grammy as Best New Artist, Easton was tapped to sing the title theme of the latest James Bond film, #For Your Eyes Only; in 1983, she duetted with Kenny Rogers on the smash We've Got Tonight, returning to the Top Ten later that year with Telefone (Long Distance Love Affair. However, with 1984's A Private Affair, Easton retooled her squeaky clean image, following the sassy Strut with the salacious Sugar Walls, written and produced by one Alexander Nevermind (a.k.a. Prince, to whose U Got the Look she contributed vocals in 1987). She followed a stint as Don Johnson's ill-fated TV wife on #Miami Vice by scoring the number two smash The Lover in Me in 1989; however, 1991's What Comes Naturally proved to be Easton's last chart entry, and after starring in a musical revival of #Man of La Mancha she spent much of the decade on stage, also appearing in a revival of #Grease as well as on the seasonal tour #The Colors of Christmas. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
