Known for her three-octave range and for pioneering the classical-crossover music movement, Sarah Brightman has amassed global sales of more than 30 million units. The only artist to have simultaneously topped Billboard’s dance and classical music charts, Brightman has racked up more than 180 gold and platinum awards in over 40 countries. She is also known for her iconic star turn in The Phantom of the Opera, whose soundtrack has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Her duet with Bocelli, “Time To Say Goodbye,” became an international success selling 12 million copies worldwide. Brightman’s albums Eden, La Luna, Harem, and Symphony were each chart-topping Billboard hits and accompanied by world tours. Additionally, Brightman has performed at such prestigious events as the 2007 Concert for Diana, the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Brightman will also unveil her much anticipated fifteenth full-length album, Hymn, on November 9, 2018 (Decca Gold/ Universal). The spiritually themed Hymn — an inspirational collection of orchestrated, choir-based songs that Brightman says felt soothing to record. Hymn, was recorded over the past two years in Hamburg, Miami, London, Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York, and Budapest.
