Sheena Easton, whose career has spanned four decades with a recording career encompassing Gold and Platinum albums in the United States, Europe and Asia. She has sold over 20 million records worldwide, is a two-time GRAMMY winner, and was the first (and still only) artist to have the top five records on five major Billboard® charts. In addition to her recording success, Sheena continues to be a top concert attraction around the world. The youngest of six children, Sheena was born in Bellshill, Scotland and is the proud mother of two children, Jake and Skylar.
Sheena also has a list of notable acting credits, including a five-episode appearance on Miami Vice, a co-starring role opposite Stacy Keach in the John Carpenter–directed Showtime trilogy, Body Bags, as a guest star in the cult syndicated series The Highlander, plus a starring role in UPN’s Ghost Stories. Other guest roles have included The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. and Tech Wars, as well as a starring role in Showtime’s The Outer Limits.
Sheena also appeared as a regular on the 2005 PAX TV show Young Blades. During 2004 Sheena and Brian McKnight hosted a talk show originating in Las Vegas—she especially enjoyed this area of performance.
On Broadway, Sheena starred as “Aldonza/Dulcinea” in Man of La Mancha opposite the late Raul Julia’s “Don Quixote.” Throughout its year run, the play remained one of the top-five grossing hits at the box office. She also enjoyed her starring role as “Rizzo” in the hit Broadway musical Grease.
For the last two decades, Sheena has been busy with frequent appearances in Las Vegas as major attraction; so much so, that she was recently honored as an inductee into the Las Vegas Hall Of Fame.
Sheena continues to perform her hits and fan favorites to audiences both in the U.S. and abroad. She feels she is most at home working with the band, but has expanded her love of the concert stage as a guest vocalist in various programs with symphonies across the nation and has made frequent appearances in “The Spy Who Loved Me.” This allows her to blend her romance with various styles of music; American standards, pop and Broadway.
