Winners Announced: Sarah Brightman contest
You could win a pair of tickets to see Sarah Brightman!
General Motors Place
Since her landmark role in Phantom of the Opera, Sarah Brightman's success has been assured. Using her powerful voice to enchant with an elegant mystery, she has mastered her own form of pop, and switches identities from classical to rock like no other vocalist working today. An anomaly in popular music, she is a siren soprano who can scale operatic heights and rework classics by bands like Queen.
Her talent has earned her over 150 gold and platinum awards in 34 countries, and Sarah is the only artist to hold #1 spots on the Billboard classical and dance charts simultaneously. She has sold over 26 million albums worldwide.
Sarah's stage career includes appearances in Cats, Aspects of Love, and of course Phantom of the Opera, the musical that made her a star. Her albums include Dive, Fly (a 1995 pop/rock disc which propelled her to fame in Europe with the hit "A Question of Honour"), Timeless (which contained her hit "Time to Say Goodbye"), La Luna, Classics (2001), and Harem (2003), a Middle-Eastern themed album influenced by dance music. The accompanying tour mixed Puccini and Queen, Arabic dance music and pure rock spectacle to gross over $60 million and sell over 700,000 tickets. Her most recent album, Symphony, features artists such as Andrea Bocelli and KISS vocalist Paul Stanley, proving Sarah has lost none of her talent for mixing opera and rock.
