Irish Pop Act The Corrs Decided To Reform After They Reunited To Play At Their Father's Funeral Earlier This Year (15).
Siblings Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and Jim Corr dominated the charts at the turn of the millennium with hits such as Runaway and Breathless, but they went on hiatus in 2006 and had not performed together in nearly a decade before losing their father, Gerry, in April this year (15).
They played at his memorial service and the sad occasion inspired them to get back together and pour their pain into new music.
Andrea Corr tells British newspaper The Sun, "We went through quite a bit during recording (the new album). Yes there was the sadness of the loss of our father. But I think on the whole the record is quite a life-affirming one. We've got to live because we're here. It's about life, death, loss and love, of course.

Sharon Corr thinks 'The X Factor' is ''appalling''.

The star - who has appeared as a judge on the Irish version of rival BBC singing show 'The Voice' - said: '' I think reality shows are dying out. The reason I did 'The Voice' was because I rated it. I felt like it was the antidote to 'The X Factor' which I think is appalling.

Sharon Corr has released her debut solo album, entitled, 'Dream of You', five years since her band 'The Corrs' took a prolonged break from the music business. The 40-year-old was the violinist in the acclaimed Irish group, but she now returns in a new role, as lead vocalist on the new record that was released on September 13th 2010.
The first single from the album is a cover of the KORGIS' 1980 hit 'Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime', but Corr wrote much of the record herself, and Reuters quoted the musician as saying, "It's a personal singer-songwriter album, with lots of violin on it. THE CORRS were put on hold because I wanted to start a family, and the album is a reflection of my life since then. When you have children you become more aware of the threat the world can hold."
THE CORRS first came to prominence after performing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, and soon after supported Celine Dion on her 'Falling into You' World Tour. The band went on to release five studio albums, and had numerous hit singles - many of which reached Platinum status in various countries. Their most successful record, 1997's 'Talk on Corners', went multi-platinum in both Australia and the UK. Sharon is the second member of the band to release a solo album, after Andrea Corr'S 2007 record, 'Ten Feet High.'
