Biography for Sarah Connor

Sarah Terenzi (née Lewe; born Jun. 13, 1980 (39 years ago)), better known as Sarah Connor, is a German singer and songwriter. She debuted in 2001 (18 years ago) under the guidance of musicians Rob Tyger and Kay Denar and became the first act to ever have four consecutive chart-topping hits on the German Media Control singles chart. Following success in mainland Europe with her single "From Sarah with Love," a series of hit records established her position as one of the most successful German pop vocalists to emerge in the early 2000 (19 years ago) with the sales of over 12 million copies worldwide.

Connor's personal life began to gain substantial media attention after her 2005 (14 years ago) marriage to American pop-rock musician Marc Terenzi, which resulted in two children, Tyler (born in 2004 (15 years ago)), and Summer (born in 2006 (13 years ago)).

Early years

Connor is the eldest of six siblings born to Michel Lewe, an advertising writer of American descent, and his wife Soraya Lewe-Tacke (née Gray), a former fashion model and homemaker of Scottish and German heritage, in Delmenhorst, Lower Saxony. She has four sisters: Anna Maria, who is married to Pekka Lagerblom, Marisa, Sophia-Luisa, and Valentina; and one brother, Robin. Her maternal half-brothers Mick and Lex were born in 2008 (11 years ago).

Connor grew up listening to soul music, mostly influenced by her paternal grandfather who was born in New Orleans. A church choir became her first experience in the gospel music field at a very young age. In her teen years Connor tried out and was accepted to a performing arts school. Although all students were required to choose an instrument, Connor was the only one allowed to study voice. She took vocal lessons once a week and worked as a waitress in a hotel to pay for them.

In 1997 (22 years ago), Connor was picked to sing with the backing choir during the performance of "Heal the World" at Michael Jackson's HIStory concert tour in Bremen, Germany. Overwhelmed by a personal meeting with Jackson at the end of the show, she signed a contract with her first management the following year, that resulted in her pseudonym Sarah Gray and the recording of a number of demo tapes, including cover versions such as "Silent Night" and "This Christmas" and the local radio success "Ula la Ula." In 1999 (20 years ago), she provided the leading vocals for producer Michael van Linden's dance remix of the 1982 (37 years ago) record "Last Unicorn," which reached number 86 on the German Singles Chart. Unhappy with her management though, Connor teamed up with manager Carlo Vista, who got her signed as Sarah Connor with producer George Glueck's label X-Cell Records a short time after. As a direct consequence, she decided to quit school and leave home at the age of 19.
