Biography

Euro-dance star Whigfield was born Sannie Charlotte Carlson in Skaelskør, Denmark, and spent some time in Africa as a child. Finding her initial career of modeling horribly dull, she returned to her first love of music, and began performing with her brother's band. Seeking more opportunities, she left Denmark and met Spagna producer Larry Pignagnoli, with whom she began recording under the name Whigfield (a tribute to her piano teacher of the same name). Her debut single, "Saturday Night," hit number one in Spain for 11 weeks in 1994, and soon became a smash all across Europe (as well as Canada), selling over two million copies worldwide; she also became the first female artist to enter the British charts at number one with her debut single, thanks to a buzz over the song from U.K. clubgoers who'd vacationed in Spain. The follow-ups "Another Day" and "Think of You" also became hits, though not quite as huge. All three were featured on her self-titled debut album, released in Europe in 1995 and America the following year (where it failed to cause nearly as much of a stir). Nevertheless, a fourth single contained on the album, "Sexy Eyes," became another worldwide smash, topping the charts in Australia in 1996. After the remix album Mega Mixes, Whigfield issued her second album, appropriately titled Whigfield II, in late 1997; another stream of international hits followed, including "Gimme Gimme," "Baby Boy," "No Tears to Cry," and "Givin' All My Love to You." Whigfield III followed in late 2000, producing hits in a cover of the Ronettes' "Be My Baby," the Spanish smash "Doo Whop," and "Much More."
