Biography

The world's most successful classical crossover artist, Sarah Brightman first tasted stardom as lead singer for Hot Gossip who had a 1978 novelty hit, "I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper. " After originating the role of Jemima in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Cats," Brightman and Webber fell in love and were married. With their careers intertwined, Brightman scored a solo hit with Webber's "Pie Jesu" and then achieved musical theater stardom as Christine Daaé in his "The Phantom of the Opera." An unprecedented, never-to-be replicated global phenomenon, "Phantom" defined an era and, after she and Webber divorced, gave Brightman the ability to launch her own successful solo singing career. Blending opera, pop, dance, electronic and world music, Brightman became the world's biggest pop/opera diva with a string of hit albums, including Dive, Fly, Time to Say Goodbye, Eden, La Luna and Harem. Her duet with Andrea Bocelli, "Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partirò)," became an enduring hit, and Brightman built an international classical crossover empire with her successful albums, tours, DVDs and specials. Although many delighted in mocking what they perceived to be improper technique or an over-the-top stage persona, others adored Brightman, who made headlines when she announced her plan to become the first professional singer to perform in outer space as part of an awareness campaign. Blessed with a piercingly pure voice able to scale immense heights, Sarah Brightman carved out her own unique place as a beloved global figure in the world's entertainment industry.
