She’s possibly the only singer who can claim to have gotten her big break working for McDonald’s, but that’s just what happened to Sheryl Crow, who landed her first major singing spot on a jingle for the fast food giant in the 1980s.
Sheryl quickly capitalized on the success, becoming a back up singer for Michael Jackson, Sting and Stevie Wonder, to name a few.
Since then it’s Sheryl who’s stolen the limelight.
She’s racked up nine Grammy Awards and sold more than 50 million albums worldwide.
Her 1993 debut album, 'Tuesday Night Music Club,' rocketed here to the top of the charts and brought her global recognition with the smash hit 'All I Wanna Do,' and three others 'Leaving Las Vegas,' 'Strong Enough' and 'Can't Cry Anymore.'
Crow followed up that success in 1996 with her self-titled second record and the hit ‘If It Makes You Happy.’
Dial forward a decade and a half and Sheryl is still making waves with her music.
She’s just released 100 Miles from Memphis, and has even found time to take up charity work, campaigning against crimes against humanity for the Enough Project.
