Sharon Helga Corr MBE (born March 24, 1970 in Dundalk, Ireland) is a musician and member of the Irish pop-rock band The Corrs. She plays the violin and sings backing vocals.
Sharon Corr began learning the violin when she was 6 years old. Her sister, Caroline Corr, was originally meant to learn it but was not interested, so Sharon began learning it instead. She has played in an orchestra and is qualified to teach the violin. The Corr siblings were awarded honorary MBEs in 2005 by Queen Elizabeth II, in recognition of their musical talents and also their charitable work which has raised money for Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, victims of the Omagh Bombing and other charities.
In 2001, she married Belfast barrister Gavin Bonnar. They met when Sharon was shooting the video of Runaway, their very first single. They welcomed their first child, a boy named Cathal Robert Gerard Bonnar, on March 31, 2006. Sharon gave birth to their second child, a girl, Flori Jean Elizabeth Bonnar on the 18th of July 2007.
Sharon Corr has also written singles such as "Runaway," " So Young," "Radio," "Long Night" and "Goodbye" which helped the band establish success within the music industry.
At 5`5", Sharon is the tallest of the three sisters, and the second tallest of the four siblings, after her elder brother Jim Corr.
As well as No Frontiers with Caroline, Sharon sings Dimming of the Day and her own version of Goodbye.
In 1999 she recorded violin parts for the Jean Michel Jarre track "Rendez-vous à Paris", which was released in 2000 on the album Metamorphoses. Sharon Corr performed the track at the Man Ray club in Paris along with Jarre and other musicians in January 2000, to promote the album to media and celebreties.
