Vocalist
    (August 21, 1944- )
    Born in Hazel, Kentucky
    Birth name is Sharon Lee Myers
    Recorded 'Faded Love,' 'Needles and Pins,' 'When You Walk in the Room,' 'What the World Needs Now Is Love,' 'A Lifetime of Loneliness,' 'Come and Get Me,' 'I Can Make It With You,' 'The Weight,' 'Put a Little Love in Your Heart' and 'Love Will Find a Way'
    Acted in 'Surf Party (1964),' 'Intimacy (1966),' 'C'mon, Let's Live a Little (1967)' and 'The Catcher (1972)'
    Though she had her own Kentucky radio show by age 11, her family failed as farmers and they moved away.
    She dated Elvis in the early '60s.
    Her songs 'Needles and Pins' and 'When You Walk in the Room' were not successful for her, but huge smashes for The Searchers.
    A prolific songwriter, ironically her first major single was written by Burt Bacharach.
    She said, 'I wanted to be an artist, just like Georgia O'Keeffe, and to be accepted for what I did. But being one of the first female singer/songwriters was a brand new thing and people didn't know exactly what to make of it.'
