Sheryl Crow was born on 11 February 1962 and raised in the city of Kennett, Missouri, the third of four children. Her father, Wendell Crow is a lawyer and trumpeter, and her mother, Bernice, a piano teacher and music buff.
With a classical music degree from the University of Missouri, Crow moved to Los Angeles in 1986 to pursue a career in pop.
Her first break came when she sang backup on Michael Jackson‘s 1987 Bad tour. Jobs with George Harrison, Joe Cocker, Stevie Wonder and Rod Stewart followed and she finally got a deal with A&M, resulting in her highly-praised debut album Tuesday Night Music Club (1993), from whence came the single All I Wanna Do (1994).
