About Sheena Easton

Scottish singer Sheena Easton shot to fame via the British TV making-of-a-pop-star documentary THE BIG TIME in 1980. Her debut single, "Modern Girl," and the follow-up "9 To 5" (known in the U.S. as "Morning Train") hit the U.K. top 10, while the latter sold over a million copies in the U.S., topping the Billboard chart for two weeks. In 1983, Easton, who had emigrated to California, recorded the country chart-topper "We’ve Got Tonight" with Kenny Rogers, but her career took a controversial turn in 1984 with the suggestive single, "Sugar Walls," a Prince song that became one of her biggest hits (and a target for Tipper Gore's PRMC blacklist). Easton has also acted extensively, with stints on MIAMI VICE and, in the '90s, several Broadway productions. Easton has spent the early '00s honing a popular cabaret/lounge act.
