Redd took classical voice lessons as a child in Norfolk, Virginia, and later had the lead role in the Australian version of 'Hair' as well as her own television special.

Redd went to London in the mid-'70's while appearing in an American production of 'The Wedding Of Iphigenia'.

After returning to America, she got widespread recognition for being a 'Shaffer Beer Girl' and used the exposure to land a job as a background vocalist for Bette Midler.

Sharon got her own deal from Prelude in 1980 and made three LPs for the label during the early '80's.

Though they were well received critically and among dance/disco audiences, they made little impact in the general R & B market.
