Born in Bellshill, Scotland, the youngest of six children, Easton’s early musical influences were Motown, Barbra Streisand, rock, and ‘70s soul. Her recording career has included gold and platinum albums in the United States, Europe and Asia. She has received two Grammys, has sold over 20 million records worldwide, and was the first —and still only— artist to have top five records on five major Billboard charts. Some of her hit singles include “Modern Girl,” “Morning Train (Nine to Five),” “U Got the Look” with Prince, and “We’ve Got Tonight” with Kenny Rogers, as well as the James Bond theme “For Your Eyes Only.” In addition to her recording success, Easton is a top concert attraction around the world, having performed in the US, United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, and Taipei.
