Who is Sheena Easton?

Sheena Easton is a Scottish/American international recording artist and stage and TV/film actress.

Easton became the third UK female solo artist ever to top the US Hot 100, following Petula Clark and Lulu. Easton's 1980 debut singles, "Modern Girl" and " 9 to 5," entered into the UK top ten, making her the first UK female artist to appear twice in the same top ten.

In the United States, Easton is a two-time Grammy Award winner with three additional Grammy nominations, and five U.S. Gold albums and one U.S. Platinum albums. She has recorded 16 studio albums, released 45 singles, and has 15 Top 40 hits on the US Billboard Hot 100 and 25 top 40 hits in international territories around the world. In Canada, Easton scored three gold and two platinum albums.
