Who is Sharleen Spiteri, how old is she and what is her background?

Sharleen Spiteri is a 49-year-old Scottish singer and frontwoman of the band Texas.

Raised in Balloch near Glasgow, the raven-haired musician has enjoyed a solo career as well as the huge popularity of her band.

Before she became a singer she was a hairdresser who loved a variety of artists including The Clash, Diana Ross and Blondie.

She formed Texas while still cutting hair and they released their first album in 1989.

Their first hit was I Don’t Want A Lover but they didn’t achieve major success until the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The tracks Say What You Want, Halo and Black Eyed Boy, Summer Son and Inner Smile made Texas a household name.

The band went on hiatus in 2005 and by 2008 Spiteri had kicked off a solo career, releasing tracks like All The Times I Cried.

But a brain aneurysm of Texas guitarist Ally McErlaine in 2010 eventually brought the band back together in 2013.
Their latest album Jump On Board was released in May 2017.

What else is Sharleeen known for?

In 2010 Sharleen was a judge on Sky One show Must Be The Music.

Fans of Texas and the comedian Peter Kay were given an extra treat in 2006 when he directed one of their videos.

The promo for the song Sleep featured Kay and Spiteri as lovers, and spoofed Lionel Richie’s Hello video, plus the movies Ghost and An Officer And A Gentleman.
