Claim to fame:
Corey Hart was born on May 31, 1962 in Montreal Quebec and is best known for the popular song Sunglasses at Night back in 1983. The song was a smash hit and was followed Never Surrender in 1985.
His fame also brought him movie roles, he was approached to star in Back to the Future but turned down the opportunity (the lead role was eventually given to Michael J. Fox). Even though he became very popular in the early 80's, he did not let the stardom get to him.
He knew that fame was something that comes and goes and did not want to get carried away with everything. There was a period in the 80's that Corey Hart began to withdraw from all the fame.
Where are they now?
Eventually his popularity began to fizzle out. His next couple of albums did not do so well. His Jade album in 1998 was not even released in the United States. Corey Hart came back to Canada to promote the album.
He also started working with other artists such as Celine Dion. He wrote some of the songs on her A New Day Has Come album. They also toured together in Canada and the United States.
Recently Hart is concentrating on promoting other artists such as Canadian singer Garou.
Hart now enjoys time with his wife and three girls. He lives in Nassau, Bahamas with his wife, Julie Masse, who is also a singer. They married in June of 2000. Hart says once he became a father it changed everything, and says it is the most important thing in his life. Hart also comments that he will never let his career choices threaten his bond with his daughters.
