Mini Bio (1)
Sharon Helga Corr is a member of the Irish pop/rock/Celtic musical group The Corrs. The other band members are her brother Jim and her sisters Andrea and Caroline. The Corrs' parents were musicians who strongly encouraged each of their children to pursue music. Sharon began learning violin at age six. Between the ages of 7 and 14 she played in the Redeemer Youth Orchestra of Country Louth.
The siblings first performed as a band when they auditioned to play in the musical film The Commitments (1991). The movie's musical director John Hughes saw potential in the band and became their manager. Sharon plays violin in the band and provides harmonizing vocals, backing up her sister, lead singer Andrea Corr. Sharon often takes the lead in press interviews with the band. The band's music shows strong influences from traditional Celtic but also modern pop such as the Eagles and the Carpenters.
In 1994 The Corrs landed a recording contract with producer David Foster of Atlantic Records (USA). Their debut album was "Forgiven, Not Forgotten" (1995), followed by "Talk on Corners" (1997), "In Blue" (2000) and "Borrowed Heaven" (2004). To date they have sold some 30 million albums. The Corrs have performed on tour with musical acts U2, Celine Dion, and the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger has commented "They blew us, the Stones, off our own stage". The Corrs have also appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and have made an MTV-sponsored "Unplugged" video.
Sharon is married to Belfast barrister Gavin Bonnar.
