Sheena Easton..320.Kbps

Sheena Shirley Easton (née Orr; born 27 April 1959) is a Scottish-American singer, recording artist and stage and screen actress with dual British-American nationality. Easton first came into the public eye as the focus of an episode in the first British musical reality television programme The Big Time: Pop Singer, which recorded her attempts to gain a record contract and her eventual signing with EMI Records.
Easton's first two singles, "Modern Girl" and "Morning Train (Nine to Five)", both entered the UK Top Ten, and she was the first UK female artist to appear twice in the same Top Ten since Ruby Murray. In 1981, "Morning Train (Nine to Five)" topped the US Hot 100, making her the third UK female solo artist to achieve this, following Petula Clark and Lulu, and she became one of the most successful British female performers of the 1980s.........Easton became the first and only artist in history to have a Top 5 hit on five different Billboard charts consecutively, with "Morning Train (Nine to Five)" (both Pop and Adult Contemporary), "We've Got Tonight" with Kenny Rogers (Country) and "Sugar Walls" (both R&B and Dance).
