Biography

There are at least five singers and two groups named Sonia.

——————
Sonia #1
Scouse songstress Sonia Evans shot to fame as a bubbly, ginger-haired, giggly popstrel with the Stock Aitken Waterman stable. Her debut single “You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You” made number one on the UK chart, and the debut album “Everybody Knows” made top ten. Further hits followed including “Can’t Forget You”, “Listen To Your Heart”, “Counting Every Minute” and “End Of The World”.

Sonia then changed labels, enjoying further hits with “Only Fools (Never Fall In Love)”, “You To Me Are Everything”, and “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy”.

Famously represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest, where she came second, losing on the last vote to Niamh Kavanagh’s “In Your Eyes” after the Malta jury awarded douze points to the latter.

Sonia appeared on the ITV show “Reborn In The USA” where she famously clashed with seventies sparklers Dollar.

In 2007, a Greatest Hits album was released - an album that mysteriously omitted all of Sonia’s Stock, Aitken, Waterman era material.

Sonia continues to tour and make TV appearances. Her stage and screen career has included stints in the West End (‘Grease’ alongside Shane Richie) and on the BBC sitcome ‘Bread’. Sonia was also famously parodied by Dawn French in the ‘Star Test’ section of the French & Saunders show.

    I really hope she goes back to making music someday... full albums, not just a single every decade or so. She has way too much talent to let it go to waste.

    All the 'Everybody Knows' tracks are available via iTunes UK, alongside a lot of highly sought after PWL material. Keep your eye on the official PWL site to find out what's been digitally released, and what is still to come.
