McKennitt was born in Morden, Manitoba of Irish and Scottish descent to parents Jack and Irene McKennitt. She moved to Stratford, Ontario in 1981, where she currently lives. Her first album, Elemental, was released in 1985 and attracted global attention with subsequent releases of self-produced work, including To Drive the Cold Winter Away (1987), Parallel Dreams (1989), The Visit (1991), The Mask and Mirror (1994), A Winter Garden (1995) and The Book of Secrets (1997).
McKennitt's single "The Mummers' Dance" was a widespread success, receiving considerable airplay in North American markets during the spring of 1997, and was used as the theme song for the short-lived TV series, Legacy. An Ancient Muse, her first full-length studio album in nine years, was released in November 2006. All of her work has been released under her own label, Quinlan Road.
In 1993, her music became known to a wider audience when she toured Europe supporting Mike Oldfield. In 1995, her version of the traditional Irish song "Bonny Portmore" was prominently featured in the film Highlander 3, causing a large increase of album sales among fans of the films. Her music has also appeared in the movies The Santa Clause, Soldier, Jade, The Mists of Avalon and the television series Roar.

Considering Enya would prefer to refrain from being famous and detests being in the spotlight, she has made quite a name for herself. She has become known as one of the world's most popular selling female artists of the '90s. Her total album sales have earned her a top ranking spot alongside other incredibly successful female artists, including Cher, Tina Turner, Madonna, and Whitney Houston.
"People listen to the music and sense what it is about. Sometimes they know exactly what the songs are about, sometimes they interpret their own meaning to the music, and that's great when this happens because it shows it's striking a chord." -Enya, on the significance of her music
Her debut album, Watermark, sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and went platinum in 14 different countries. Not to mention she is also ranked among Ireland's richest people. This would probably explain why she chooses to live in a castle, rather than a house or apartment like the rest of us mere mortals.

Sarah Brightman was born near London, England in 1960. She was a workaholic from an early age, never wasting a minute of free time. Straight from school, she went to ballet lessons. When she got home at eight o'clock, she went to bed. She got up at four in the morning to do her homework and then began the schedule all over again. When she was a teenager she decided to try her hand, or her vocals, at singing. In 1978, she released the single, "I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper" and it became an instant disco hit.
In 1981, she tried out for a role in an up-and-coming musical, 'Cats'. It was there that she met her soul mate and future husband, Andrew Lloyd Webber. They were married in 1982, and she went on to star in a number of his shows, particularly 'The Phantom of the Opera', in which the role of Christine was written for her. Sarah gained recognition in the London theatre scene, but it was not the kind she wanted. People got the notion that the only push behind her success was that she was Mrs. Andrew Lloyd Webber.
A far too career-orientated Sarah decided the only way to get the recognition she deserved was to go out and gain it for herself. She divorced Lloyd Webber in 1990, but despite this, they are still the best of friends. In 1991, she met Frank Peterson. He became her producer, leading her to huge success with Albums such as Dive (1993), Fly (1995) Timeless/Time To Say Goodbye (1997), Eden (1998), and La Luna (2000). Her style and vocal ability range from upbeat pop songs to opera arias, all of which are performed beautifully. Because of Sarah's hard work and determination, her name and voice are known world wide. She is truly an artist.

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream is a German electronic music group founded in 1967 by Edgar Froese. The band has undergone several personnel changes over the years, with Froese the only continuous member. Drummer and composer Klaus Schulze was a member of an early lineup, but the most stable version of the group during their influential mid-1970s period was as a keyboard trio with Froese, Christopher Franke, and Peter Baumann. Early in the 1980s, Johannes Schmoelling replaced Baumann, and this lineup, too, was stable and extremely productive.
Tangerine Dream's early "Pink Years" albums had a pivotal role in the development of Krautrock. Their "Virgin Years" and later albums became a defining influence in New Age music, although the band themselves dislike the term.
Although the group has released numerous studio and live recordings, a substantial number of their fans were introduced to Tangerine Dream by their film soundtracks, which numbers over sixty and includes Sorcerer, Thief, The Keep, Risky Business, Firestarter, Legend, Near Dark, and Miracle Mile.
