Good quality live performance from Sheena. Sheena Easton (born Sheena Shirley Orr; 27 April 1959) is a Scottish recording artist. Easton became famous for being the focus of an episode in the British television program The Big Time, which recorded her attempts to gain a record contract and her eventual signing with EMI Records.
Easton rose to fame in the early 1980s with the pop hits "9 to 5" -- known as "Morning Train" in the United States and "For Your Eyes Only", "Strut", "Sugar Walls", "U Got The Look" W/Prince, and "The Lover In Me". She went on to become more successful in the United States and Japan, working with Prince, Kenny Rogers, Luis Miguel, LA Reid & Babyface, Nile Rodgers, and other prominent vocalists and producers.
In 2000, Easton co-starred with David Cassidy in At The Copa, a show in Las Vegas at The Rio Hotel for one year.
She also signed an album contract with Universal International UK and attempted a comeback with Fabulous, an album of classic disco covers produced by Ian Masterson of Trouser Enthusiasts fame and Terry Ronald.[citation needed] The first single, "Giving Up, Giving In", reached UK No.54, and the album failed to chart in the UK and was not released in the US. A second single, a cover of Donna Summer's hit "Love is in Control", was withdrawn. In Japan, the first single was "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and the album included a cover of Teena Marie's "I Need Your Lovin" as a bonus track. Remixes of the singles were produced by Joey Negro, Sleaze Sisters, Sharp Boys, Rob Searle, DJ Soma Grow and Almighty. This was to be Easton's last album release to date.
